British Silent Film Festival

The Phantom of the Moulin Rouge TBC

Sat 14 Sep, 5.30pm


Rene Clair’s first feature shows this wonderful filmmaker experimenting with the medium in an uninhibited and mischievous way. As Jean, a respectable businessman, discovers the secret of astral projection, the temptation of mischief becomes irresistible to him and he reaps havoc on Paris and in particular, the Moulin Rouge!


Indulging in pure fantasy, there are flights of fancy worthy of Melies in this supernatural precursor to some of his phantasmagorical later works, such as The Ghost Goes West (1935).


Thanks to Lobster Film in Paris for this UK premiere of their new restoration.
