Yesterday we tore ourselves away from lovely Eden-burgh.
We had to try twice: The bus we planned to catch didn’t have an updated timetable, so we missed the first run of the day. But with tickets on will-call for a nearly ninety-year-old film neither of us had seen, well, we were going to get there.
And there was a town called Bo’ness and an event called the 2015 Hippodrome Festival of Silent Cinema aka HippFest. The movie? A tender and moving German film whose English title is Children of No Importance (1926), dir. Gerhard Lamprecht.
*himsel=The most important man in a household, workplace, etc., including a movie queue
NB: The Featured Image (black and white image of children) is a still that E captured from the short that screend prior to the feature. The short (also silent) was filmed in Paisley, Scotland; it depicted children queuing for movies and mugging for the camera. Also, both films included live piano accompaniment.
