Film Preview: The Big Smoke, 6 – 7 September, Filmhouse, Edinburgh

3 Sep

This Sunday and Monday sees Edinburgh’s Filmhouse screen the final selection of short silent films from the BFI Mediatheque on Tour, Big Smoke.

Subtitled Films from a Lost London 1896-1945, these films will allow you to experience London life in a bygone age, from the bustle of the Victorian commute to the ordeal of the Blitz.

According to the website, The Big Smoke “explores the forgotten face of the capital with a tantalising tour through half a century of life in this most vibrant of cities. Highlights include Blackfriars Bridge (1896), an extraordinary glimpse of Victorians travelling to work by horse-drawn tram and on foot at an enviably elegant pace.”

Visit the Filmhouse website for full details of the event.
