The cinematic experience is comprised not only of the images on a screen but of all the elements surrounding it, says Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Sam Green.
He will explore the connections between filmmaking and live performance in a free public lecture Thursday, April 11, in the Multimedia Studio, Alan Wildeman Centre for Creative Arts.
Entitled “The Movie Starts When You Walk in the Front Door! A Talk on Documentary, Liveness, and the Magic of Cinema,” Green’s presentation will intersperse clips from his work, including the 2002 feature The Weather Underground, nominated for an Oscar as best documentary.
The event will begin at 6 p.m. and is presented by the Humanities Research Group as part of its Martin Wesley lecture series. The Alan Wildeman Centre for Arts is located at 160 Freedom Way.
