Oodles of screen comedy favourites in the mix, too, via clips, plus a rare chance to see early Russian, Czech and Japanese silent comedies; the regional premiere of the new Chaplin documentary, events saluting the pioneering women from Hollywood’s youth, Bill Oddie exploring why it’s funny when it hurts and a live Zoom call with James Curtis about his new book: Buster Keaton: A Filmmakers’ Life.
