YouTube account Like Stories of Old has reimagined last summer’s war epic Dunkirk by director Christopher Nolan as an eight-minute black & white silent film. What started as an essay exploring the director’s visual storytelling and silent film influences, turned into a highlight video of the entire two-plus film devoid of all its dialogue and exposition.
