Branch Event: The Essential Components of Film: The Debt Cinema Owes all the Art

Ref: C3744359

Film is an art form comprised of many diverse components - poetry, music, performance, narrative, architecture, the visual image - but these are often passed over in favour of a hermetic approach, in which the only influences on film are other films. This study day will focus on practice rather than theory, exploring each of these components and the vital part they play in today’s cinema. Poetry for instance shares with film the language of visual imagery and the structure and dynamics of music represent a direct parallel to those of film. For film lovers, understanding these links can serve to deepen and enhance the cinema-going experience.
