We may imagine the world of silent comedy in monochrome - but it has not always been. In this session, we will see stencil-colored shorts featuring child actor Bout de Zan (and a crocodile) courtesy EYE Fimmuseum, and the first of a number of two color systems featured in this edition of Colour in Film. Also, we are particulary grateful for Association Chaplin for approving of a special screening of a tinted, Swiss variant print of the Chaplin classic, SHOULDER ARMS, restored by Cinémathèque Suisse and NFA Prague using chemical tinting. Musical accompaniment by Stephen Horne.
