Make More Noise! Suffragettes in Silent Film + Live Performance by Lillian Henley

With a title inspired by Emmeline Pankhurst’s speech, the BFI presents over 20 silent archive films combining gloriously anarchic comedies, newsreels and rarely seen footage. A fascinating insight into women’s suffrage, accompanied by a specially commissioned score, written and performed live by Lillian Henley.

With thanks to Shackleford Pianos.
