Anatomy of Cinema: How Movies Move Us

Anatomy of Cinema: How Movies Move Us

Anatomy of Cinema is now at capacity and SOLD OUT.

When we watch a film, the experience tends to wash over us. We pay attention to the story and recognize its effect, but we may not notice techniques that move us—the underlying anatomy that makes up each film. In a series of eight two-hour sessions, Vanderbilt faculty members in Cinema & Media Arts lead interactive discussions on the primary categories of film technique and the aesthetic experience of the moving image.

Session 8: Film and Painting | Photography, some theorists say, liberated painting from the mandates of representation, and many early photographs take their cues from genres of painting. How does cinema fit into and also challenge this narrative? What is the relationship between the moving, photographic image (typically taken of the “real” world) and the still encounter with painting (that typically produces its own world)? This session thinks in broad strokes about the relationship between these two media. Faculty members: Jennifer Fay and Andrea Mirabile
