This experimental silent film, made in Switzerland by an independent British film company, is chiefly remembered as Paul Robeson's first film. Boldly blending Eisensteinian montage and domestic melodrama, the film features Robeson and his wife, Eslanda, as lovers caught up in a tangled web of interracial affairs
Kenwin : un film ( visu )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Kenwin: The Villa Kenwin, built by Hermann Henselmann in 1930-1931, was home to Kenneth Macpherson, filmmaker, and Winifred Ellerman (Bryer) who entertained the poet H.D. (Hilda Doolittle-Aldington) and her daughter Perdita. Built as a modernist utopia, the villa exemplifies the life of a social world. Through tours of the villa and with correspondence between H.D., Bryer, and Macpherson, the past is revisited
