COLLECTION OF ART STORIES  ︎ 



Lois Weber

b. June 13, 1879 - November 13, 1939, USA


Lois Weber was an American silent film actress, screenwriter, producer, and director. She is identified in some historical references as "the most important female director the American film industry has known", and among “the most important and prolific film directors in the era of silent films".
Weber, who had been a street-corner evangelist before entering motion pictures in 1905, became the first American woman movie director of note, and a major one at that.

At the beginning it was the idea of building a small arts library. Then, little by little, the commitment to share it.
Choice, preference, ignorance, evidence, all assumed.
A desire to discover, an encouragement to remember. Sometimes.
