Pictures and Video: Silver Pictures Press Conference

As yesterday’s press conference for Silver Pictures was not open to the public, I asked Venice videographer Tony Vera to document it in full to share with you. The press conference begins at 5:33:

My pictures of the event, which include a slideshow of the recently gutted and sandblasted main and ground floors:
