I am currently waiting at Schiphol airport before taking off to Pordenone for the 32nd edition of Le Giornate del Cinema Muto. It is the second time I attend, the last time being 2010. I am not sure as to whether this year will be able to top the Soviet silents of especially Mikhail Kalatozov screened in 2010 which were incredible, but the program looks impressive nonetheless and there will be a lot of Soviet silent cinema to dive into. I am especially looking forward to Viktor Turin’s Turksib (1929) and to the programs of early Soviet animation films which I am sure will be incredibly entertaining. The full program can be found here.
