One of the very last silent films to be made in Britain before the talkies revolutionized cinema.
A Cottage on Dartmoor is a virtuoso piece of filmmaking, a final passionate cry in defence of an art form soon to be obsolete. Directed by Anthony Asquith (better known for The Browning Version and The Way to the Stars) this film is an embroiled melodrama, a tale of love and revenge, set on the bleak landscape of Dartmoor.
This special screening will feature a live piano score by silent film specialist Stephen Horne and has been organised as part of the AHRC-funded Silent Cinema and the Transition to Sound Colloquium - www.silenttosound.org.uk
