Lively and bustling with sounds, movie screenings in Japan during the silent film era were anything but silent. Silent films in Japan were rarely silent. Screenings were accompanied by live music performed by bands of musicians and narration by katsudo benshi or motion picture narrators. Movie theaters in Japan were home to exciting live performances where the trinity of images, music and narrating conjured up the magic of cinema. The Talking Silents series from Digital Meme recreates this unique Japanese screening format.
