Silent Film Australia Ltd., presenter of Australia’s Silent Film Festival, and the Pitt Street Uniting Church are proud to host a season of restored silent film classics and live music to support Tradewinds and its not for profit project in East Timor
Australia’s Silent Film Festival is pleased to present monthly evening screenings of classic silent films in the city as a lead-up to the 2010 Festival in September.
David Bailey, the acclaimed young Australian theatre organist with many outstanding performances at GOMA silent film events in Brisbane, will be playing the Uniting Church’s 1910 Hill & Son organ for three of the five sessions, as outlined below. The other two screenings will be accompanied by internationally acclaimed pianist, Mauro Colombis, whose playing has already thrilled audiences at silent film festivals in Italy, and who has brought his special talents to Australia.
Each silent film, presented digitally every month from April to August 2010, is a classic melodrama of the 1920s, having become timeless over the decades due to its high quality of production and ever-popular themes.

Short: The Talion Punishment (1906) 4 minutes 13 seconds
A delightful and surprising example of the creativity of early filmmakers in France who used hand-cut stencils to colour each frame of this unusual short film. Early cinema was based on theatrical performances of the day, involving dance, movement and colourful costumes, such as women dressed as butterflies.
Silent: Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde (1920) 70 minutes. David Bailey on organ
This famous story has been filmed many times, but this silent version captures the Victorian atmosphere and struggle between good and evil realistically, while legendary actor, John Barrymore is unforgettable in the lead role. A true horror movie, this film is considered to be most faithful to the original book.
Tradewinds Fairtrade Organic coffees and teas available for nominal charge from 6.15pm each evening.
