Details

The Humanities Center is excited to present Silent Film Fridays, where select Friday afternoons we will be showing a famous silent film throughout the Spring semester. Come enjoy the origins of film with your friends and watch where it all started.

This week's film is "The Artist" (2011), directed by Michel Hazanavicius. In the 1920s, actor George Valentin (Jean Dujardin) is a bona fide matinee idol with many adoring fans. While working on his latest film, George finds himself falling in love with an ingenue named Peppy Miller (Bérénice Bejo) and, what's more, it seems Peppy feels the same way. But George is reluctant to cheat on his wife with the beautiful young actress. The growing popularity of sound in movies further separates the potential lovers, as George's career begins to fade while Peppy's star rises.
