Where does cinema come from?
Lecture by Walter Murch
3 décembre 2016
A lecture about the historic transition from analog to digital cinema, and how both can come to the rescue of the early artifacts of a budding art form which at the time certainly didn't regard itself as art but rather an invention, an oddity, a means of entertainment. But cinema's origins may be traced back to long before its invention, as though humanity had always been hoping for it. So, where does cinema come from? How did it manage to catch on so quickly after going on the market? Should its technical advent mark its birthdate — or was it borne out of the other arts, themselves an expression of the great human reverie.
