Publication of ‘Rex Ingram, Visionary Director of the Silent Screen’



I’d like to announce the publication of my new critical biography of Irish silent-era filmmaker, Rex Ingram.


Rex Ingram, Visionary Director of the Silent Screen is published by University Press of Kentucky:


We will be launching it on Tuesday 9th December at the Irish Film Institute with a screening of Ingram’s 1926 World War One film, Mare Nostrum. This will be accompanied with a new score by Dublin-based silent film specialists, 3epkano. The event is supported by Trinity College’s Visual and Performing Arts Fund.
