Crossing the Great Sagrada 1924

12 mins United Kingdom Director. Adrian Brunel

Travel films were all the rage in the 1920s, and this short comedy pokes fun at the self-importance of the intrepid explorers who led the expeditions to exotic climes. The film is a slice of silent silliness, composed of a mish-mash of out-takes, home movie footage and jokey titles.
