Comparative film for 2017/18, this multi-award winning, silent and black and white film offers themes of ambition, artistry, romance and the impact of technology, as well as the interesting setting of early Hollywood. Valentin is the silent star with the faithful dog, Uggi, who finds himself becoming increasingly out-of-date with the arrival of sound, while his co-star Peppy adapts more easily and becomes a success in her own right.
