Presented by Vito Adriaensens, Film
February 16th, 2016, 12 pm
Dodge Hall, Room 511
Professor Vito Adriaensens presents a five-part silent cinema matinee series with live music by Belgian jazz musician Adriaan Campo and friends.
Come and explore the first wave of art films in this second part dedicated to European cinema’s first forays into what we now know as arthouse cinema. In the sensationalist Danish The Last Victim of the White Slave Trade, a wholesome young woman falls prey to white slave traders; and in the French short drama The Heart and the Money, an arranged marriage tears apart the youthful protagonist.
