Silent films with brilliant live music in a magnificent movie palace – some of the best four days of the year! The 2013 San Francisco Silent Film Festival features films from nine countries, and musicians from around the world and across the United States. From the incandescent Louise Brooks, to the Legong dancers of Bali, to the Kings of (Silent) Comedy, to the intense beauty of Weimar Cinema, to the lyricism of Yasujiro Ozu, to Harold Lloyd hanging from the hand of a clock high above a city street - each of the seventeen programs at SFSFF delivers its own distinct version of the wonder of silent film. And with accompaniment by Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra, Stephen Horne, Matti Bye Ensemble, Günter Buchwald, and Clubfoot Orchestra with Gamelan Sekar Jaya, each program promises to be a revelation, whether you've seen the film a dozen times or never before.
