SF Silent Film Festival: Amazing Tales at the Roxie

San Francisco Silent Film Festival Presents…

Amazing Tales at The Roxie!

Featuring a presentation on the long-awaited restoration of Foolish Wives (1922)

The restoration of Erich von Stroheim’s Foolish Wives was an epic undertaking by the San Francisco Silent Film Festival (SFSFF) and the Museum of Modern Art, New York. Completed in 2020, the stunning new restoration will open SFSFF’s 25th festival. The most expensive film ever made in its time, Foolish Wives was shot in large part on extraordinary sets built on the coast of Santa Cruz County to recreate the Mediterranean vistas of Monte Carlo. SFSFF board president Robert Byrne, MoMA curator of film Dave Kehr, and San Francisco historian Brad Rosenstein will present on the history, local connections, and restoration of Foolish Wives for a very special edition of our Amazing Tales program.
