One of the great writer-directors of early cinema and the most renowned female director of her era, Lois Weber (1879–1939) was at one time the highest paid director in Hollywood. In her 25-year career, she made over 40 features and 100 short films. FilmBath and South West Silents are proud to present this special evening celebrating her work, with a screening of two Weber classics: her one-reel short Suspense (1913) and feature film The Blot (1921). Both will be accompanied on piano by Lillian Henley, with introductions and Q&A sessions by esteemed film critics and writers Pamela Hutchinson and Ellen Cheshire.
