<The Phantom Carriage at VIFF Vancity>

(October 27, 2014 - Vancouver, BC) The Phantom Carriage is one of those great films from the silent era that both entertain and illustrate how filmmakers built the business by devising new ways to tell their stories. Without computers or special effects departments, they created camera tricks and processing tricks to thrill their audiences. One such film is the 1921 feature-length fright film The Phantom Carriage by director Victor Sjostrom and it will play with a live music score in Vancouver this Friday and Saturday.Arrow
