One hundred years ago: 1919

Ciao! We're in Bologna, Italy. Like every year, we join here the Cinema Ritrovato festival: one of the greatest film parties in the world, offering some 500 great films, masterpieces and rarities. EFSP follows the events with posts on actors and programs. We start with 'One hundred years ago: 1919', for which Ivo Blom made a selection with rare postcards with stars from the films which are shown in this section.
