Launching an evening exploring early cinematic projection, Guy Edmonds is a Marie Curie Fellow of Early Cinema and Cognitive Creativity and researcher on Plymouth University’s doctoral programme, CogNovo. He will begin the screening with a projection of The Great Train Robbery on a 100 year-old 35mm hand-cranked projector.

Next is Man with a Movie Camera, part documentary, part cinematic art and a silent film classic, directed by Dziga Vertov. Following a city in the Soviet Union in the 1920s across one full day, Vertov uses a variety of complex and innovative camera shots conveying the marvels of the modern city.
