Finally, the time has come to announce the date of the show that has been in the works for a while. Moving silently show will be open at 7 PM PST at the Niles Essanay Silent Film Museum - 37417 Niles Blvd, Fremont, CA 94536.
Paying tribute to art and technology in the heart of Silicon Valley, early film and contemporary video art, Moving Silently is a festival of ideas.
