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

The Rosary

Dirs. Lois Weber & Phillips Smalley
1913, 15min, DCP

 

In this silent-era music video, Weber uses an array of formally inventive techniques—including evocative matte shots—to visualize a popular song of the era.

Recorded music by Esin Aydingoz and the Berklee Silent Film Orchestra

 
Fine Feathers

Dirs. Lois Weber & Phillips Smalley.
1912, 15min, DCP

 

Weber addresses issues of class and the subjugation of women in this tale of an artist’s model exploited by a painter.

Recorded music by Liz Magnes

 
 
 
Where Are My Children

Dir. Lois Weber
With Tyrone Power Sr., Helen Riaume, Marie Walcamp
1916, 65min, DCP

 

This controversial drama is a frank and, for its time, surprisingly risky look at abortion, birth control, and sexuality that weds Weber’s innovative cinematic style to an impassioned (though now unsurprisingly retrograde) sociopolitical statement.

Recorded music by Maud Nelissen
