Seven Silent Films
These set of films contain many historical importance in film: first all black cast film, first female film director, oldest known movie depicting the working day for typical Singapore folks in 1911, only known film from the career of Dorothy Gibson, and the oldest known film of the Count of Monte Cristo.
Suttle Films was apart of this process in restoring and developing a DVD of these seven lost films for Native Intelligence Distribution. “It’s an interesting project due to the fact that these films from the turn of the 20th century were once thought to be lost. It’s exciting to be a part of bringing this film history back to life” James Suttles.
