New Digital Restoration!
Double Feature with SHOES
(1916) dir Lois Weber, Phillips Smalley w/Anna Pavlova, Rupert Julian [112 min; DCP]
Fenella, a mute fisher-girl living during the Spanish occupation of Naples in the mid-17th century, is seduced and abandoned by a Spanish nobleman. As a result of this betrayal and the oppression of their people, Fenella’s brother foments a revolution. One of the first historical epics directed by a woman and the only surviving filmed performance by famed ballerina Anna Pavlova, DUMB GIRL OF PORTICI is a film ripe for rediscovery – especially now thanks to this beautiful new restoration.
Restored by the Library of Congress and Lori Raskin.
