Timeline is a series of events that will focus on the artistry of both music and sound in film, from the early twentieth century to the present day.
Carl Davis, Kevin Brownlow, Patrick Stanbury and Gary Yershon present the first event in the series, exploring the silent film Napoléon (1927).
The panel will discuss a series of excerpts from Birth of a Nation and Napoléon, and will discuss the use of music in silent film and their own work in the field. A Q&A at the end of the event will be chaired by Gary Yershon.
