Everything You Never Knew You Wanted to Know About Berlin
Billy Wilder’s 1950 Sunset Boulevard starring the inimitable Gloria Swanson as the faded silent movie star Norma Desmond and William Holden as the unsuccessful scriptwriter Joe Gillis, is one of the most classic of all Hollywood classics.
Next to Mankiewicz’s All About Eve, Sidney Lumet’s 12 Angry Men and On The Waterfront by Elia Kazan, to name just a few, it was the film of American cinema’s Golden Age.
Here is your chance to sink into a comfortable cinema chair and let yourself be carried away by the celluloid magic. The film will be presented as part of the Magical History Tour (Voice, Language and Speaking in Film series) organised by the The Institute for Film and Video Art.
