Hilde D'haeyere



Hilde D'haeyere is a photographer and film historian who investigates photographic aspects of silent cinema. Much of her work is on slapstick comedy, with a particular focus on film style, movie technology, and the mechanisms of comedy in the films produced by Mack Sennett. She publishes articles and performs lectures that result from hands-on and embodied research methods that reactivate film history. Recent publications include "Splashes of Fun and Beauty: Mack Sennett's Bathing Beauties" in Slapstick Comedy (Routledge 2010), "Technicolor-Multicolor-Sennett-Color" in Colour and the Moving Image (Routledge 2012), and "Slapstick on Slapstick" in Film History 26:2 (2014). Currently she teaches at KASK school of arts, University College Ghent, Belgium, where she holds a post-doctoral research fellowship.
