Behind the Pictures

Lecture

Age 10 to 14

Cinema is a place both of seeing and not-seeing. Many processes that are essential to the moving images appearing on the screen are deliberately made invisible. How are single images creating the illusion of movement? How can a dancer on the screen fly for half a minute? And are there films that are more cinematic than others? In this lecture we will take a very close look to not only see the films from over 100 years of cinema history but also learn how they make things visible by keeping other things in the dark.
