Session 4: Editing | Editing is the joining of shots, ranging from the “invisible style” of Hollywood cinema to the more experimental techniques of Soviet Montage and the French New Wave. Because editing enables filmmakers to create completely imaginary geographies and temporalities, it is often considered to be the most cinematic of all techniques. Through it, cinema creates its own world. We consider this manipulation and creation. Led by Jennifer Fay​
