The Past

Silent Films & Live Score: Buster Keaton

An emotionless face, a straw hat and willingness to fight any situation. These are some of the key attributes of the slapstick characters represented by Buster Keaton. Keaton was way much more than a brilliant silent comedy actor. He was a true artist. Each of his films can be read as a tenacious quest for innovative ways of depicting, managing and proving things in film. Buster Keaton maintains to be one of the most courageous and talented directors in the history of cinema. Someone who created much more than The General (1926).
