Images for 'Hearing Silent Films'
NOTE. The quality of these images is execrable. They are video captures. And I have decided to make them big. However, they can still act as illustrations for some of the ideas in my essay. Since the book in which the essay was printed does not contain any visual material at all, these images are better than none. Perhaps in the next few months I will turn some of them into clips or otherwise animate them. Fat chance.
