Event details

Part 2 of this two-part lecture series.

It might sound almost impossible but this will be an extraordinarily speedy journey through the history of cinema. This unique opportunity is vital for all filmmakers because:

  • it’s important to have an understanding of the journey of cinema from its birth up to the present day.
  • by trying to condense such a rich history in such a short time we will be able to distill the main themes and challenges that cinema is facing around the world.

This lecture series – accompanied with various clips – will be given by Asher Tlalim, the Head of FilmLab.
