Film Theory

Film is a powerful medium. How and why does it command such attention? What lures does it truly hold? Since the first projections of photographic moving images, people have been puzzled by, and so pondered, this re-presentation of life with a difference. In this seminar we will track the history of theoretical writings about the cinema.
