Mad About Max: The Films of Max Linder

French Institute Alliance Française, Upper East Side Tuesday December 10 2013 19:30
Two of the biggest problems in modern moviemaking are an overreliance on special effects and also insisting on having the actors talk. Pioneering filmmaker Max Linder understood this, and made great movies without the use of a green screen or, it turns out, sound. FIAF screens Seven Years Bad Luck and three shorts.
