Significant cinema is far more than story-telling. It contains moments of truth that can’t be expressed any other way except through cinematic style. Just what cinema is and could be is explored with over 100 clips, many of them surprising, and through interviews with the likes of Alfred Hitchcock, Akira Kurosawa, Robert Bresson and David Lynch, in What is Cinema?, documentarian Chuck Workman’s engrossing visual essay about mastery of cinematic form.
The world premiere will be followed by an on-stage conversation with the filmmaker.
