The Festival’s closing night attraction will be “The Black Pirate,” a silent feature made in 1926 and starring Douglas Fairbanks. It is a fitting program for the Columbus, which opened its doors that very year and will be accompanied live by an original score composed and performed by the noted Alloy Orchestra. Preceding the silent classic will be the presentation of restored fragments of “My Lady of the Lilacs,” a recently rediscovered silent film made in Rhode Island in 1916 and written by pioneering female screenwriter Beta Breuil.
