silent-movieI was recently introduced to OpenCulture, a website that boasts “the best free cultural and educational media on the web”.

Well, they certainly list heaps of excellent and very interesting content: ebooks, audiobooks, courses, MOOCs, language lessons, movies, teaching resources… but what really got me is their selection of 101 silent films.

If, like me, you are not wild about Charlie Chaplin, the numer is somewhat smaller – but all the same, the wonders you’ll find on that page! From Fritz Lang to Méliès, from very early Hitchcock to the Lumière Brothers, from Murnau to Eisenstein, to Renoir…

Quite mouth-watering. Oh, to just have time enough and world…
