The Burning Brazier
Le brasier ardent, Ivan Mozzhukhin, 1923, France, 97 minutes

Passing Shadows
Les ombres qui passent, Alexandre Volkoff, 1924, France, 100 minutes

Both with live piano accompaniment by Ben Model

The film that allegedly convinced Jean Renoir to direct, The Burning Brazier demonstrates Ivan Mozzhukhin’s flamboyant eccentricity at its finest. Mozzhukhin also wrote Passing Shadows, a comic masterwork inspired by Chaplin and Keaton. This is the North American premiere screening of new, color-tinted restorations by the Cinémathèque française.
