Speaker information

Pantelis Michelakis, curator and host, University of Bristol
Maria Wyke, curator and host, University College London

A free screening of rare silent films set in ancient Greece and Rome accompanied by live music. Through gesticulation and look, exotic sets and costumes, colour, music and movement, these films draw their audiences into an ancient world where life is lived passionately and to an extreme. Introduced by Pantelis Michelakis and Maria Wyke.

Being Human is the UK’s first national festival of the humanities, engaging people across the UK with innovative research. Led by the School of Advanced Study, University of London, in partnership with the AHRC and the British Academy.
