Celebrating over one hundred years of cinema, this entertaining documentary series explores the birth and early development of the European film industry.
The OTHER HOLLYWOOD was created by the team of Kevin Brownlow and David Gill, whose past collaborations have included the critically acclaimed series Hollywood, The Unknown Chaplin, Buster Keaton: A Hard Act to Follow, Harold Lloyd: The Third Genius, and D.W. Griffith: Father of Film.
The OTHER HOLLYWOOD traces the history of early movie making in Europe. From the silent short-subjects in Paris shot by the pioneering Lumiere brothers in 1895 to the emergence of sound films and the threat of fascism to the industry in 1933, this documentary series covers and uncovers it all. Exclusive interviews with film veterans, including John Gielgud and the controversial Leni Riefenstahl, offer remembrances of the early years.
