UNKNOWN CHAPLIN

DIRECTOR: KEVIN BROWNLOW & DAVID GILL

English film historians Brownlow and Gill, under the auspices of Photoplay Productions, together collaborated on a series of documentaries which together act as a peerless primer in silent cinema, elucidating its forgotten charms and its unparalleled beauties. In Unknown Chaplin, they turn their sights on one of the most famous film artists who ever lived, and produce one of the most cogent yet beautiful films about the craft of filmmaking.

Unknown Chaplin is screening as part of Metrograph A to Z, a collection of films we think everybody should see. Click here for more info.
