A conversation about this year’s Giornate del Cinema Muto, a.k.a. the Pordenone Silent Film Festival, with its artistic director, Jay Weissberg. The most important annual showcase of early silent cinema return to Pordenone, Italy, this year as an in-person event for its landmark 40th anniversary edition. Weissberg shares with us some of the major features of its program, including a focus on women in film, a rare retrospective on Korean silent cinema and its opening and closing gala screenings of Ernst Lubitsch and Alexandre Volkoff masterworks. We also reflect on the reason behind the Giornate del Cinema Muto’s long-standing success over its 40-year history and how it has impacted the way in which film lovers and scholars think about, explore and exhibit early silent cinema.
