Kevin Brownlow - Special Guest at 2009 Killruddery Silent Film Festival - talks about his life long passion for silent cinema.
Wikipedia: Kevin Brownlow is a film maker, film historian, television documentary-maker, and author. He is best known for his work documenting the history of the silent era. Brownlow developed an interest in silent film at the young age of eleven. This interest grew into a life-long passion for the cinema and a career spent documenting and restoring film. He is without question one of the most respected and admired historians of the early cinema and has rescued many a silent film and its history from oblivion. Seeking out and interviewing many, largely forgotten film pioneers in the 1960s and 1970s, he preserved a priceless legacy of cinema that would have otherwise been lost.
