Marynia Gierat is expressing the origin and concept of ”Silent Film Festival” in Cracow. In the beginning there was an idea of showing Buster Keyton′s films with real time audio performance. Today festival scene is cyclical event and one of the first in the world and it has received many followers. For several years, it is organized by Kino Pod Baranami. Special part is dedicated to women roles and directors (Greta Garbo, Pola Negri, Lillian Gish, Luise Brooks,…) and their influence until our time. Silent film projections accompanied by real time audio play are authentic performances, sometimes with a bit damaged blinking material.
