The 1920s was a golden age for world cinema. We visit Paris, Moscow, Shanghai and Tokyo to discover the places where filmmakers pushed the boundaries of the medium.
German Expressionism, Soviet montage, French Impressionism and Surrealism were passionate new film movements, but less well known are the glories of Chinese and Japanese films and the moving story of one of the great, now forgotten stars, Ruan Lingyu.
