One of film history’s first auteurs, writer, producer, director, and actress Lois Weber combined daring themes of social justice with pioneering technical breakthroughs in cinematic storytelling.

Suspense

Dirs. Lois Weber & Phillips Smalley
1913, 11min, DCP

 

This one-reel thriller—about a menaced mother and child—displays Weber’s dazzling formal mastery, including film history’s first split-screen. Film theorist Tom Gunning wrote: “No film made before WWI shows a stronger command of film style.”

Recorded music by Skylar Nam and the Berklee Silent Film Orchestra

 
Scandal Mongers

Dir. Lois Weber
1916, 36min, DCP

 

Weber envisions gossip as a literal beast that destroys the life of a stenographer accused of having an affair with her boss.

Recorded music by Andrew Earle Simpson

 
 
 
Hypocrites

Dir. Lois Weber
1915, 52min, DCP

 

Weber courted immense controversy with this provocative exploration of sham religious piety, in which moral hypocrisy is exposed by the Naked Truth—portrayed literally by a nude actress.

Recorded Music by Ben Model
