The College of Charleston is proud to present Silencing Homer: The Iliad and The Odyssey in Early Cinema. The event features three short silent films by three maverick directors, pioneers in the realm of special effects. All three filmmakers used movie magic to bring Homer’s fantastical tales to the silver screen. All three visionaries were also inspired by the golden age of archaeology, by the discoveries that lent creedence to Homer's epics.
