ABOUT

An intimate drama film by director Frances Marion in a brand new restoration of the Eye Film Museum. The daughter of devoted widow Ma Birdsong, Essie, becomes entangled in a relationship with a boy who doesn't seem to care much for her. Even when it's Ma's dying wish on her deathbed, he refuses to come and Essie comes up with another plan.

The film will be introduced by the silent film curator of the Eye Film Museum Elif Rongen-Kaynakçi. She will not only discuss the film itself, but also the special process of restoring and reconstructing a 100-year-old film.
