With the cinema exhibition and distribution of films on home computer screens or mobile phones, cinema seems to be undergoing a major transformation. Has it reversed the sense of the 'End of an Era' by new media and new practices, or is it able to reverse its own elements for its own purposes? Has it entered its post-mortem age ? What about it's democratic practices ? What is the nature of the dialogue between cinema and contemporary art?
This book proposes to reflect on the future of cinema and its possible reversal, both it's technical and poetic theory.
It brings together twelve articles published in various magazines or catalogs ( Cinergon , Vertigo , Cinema, Traffic , Fresh Theory III) from 1999 to 2008 . These texts explore the metamorphic power of cinema, subject to significant technological and aesthetic transformations.
Through accurate and detailed analyzes of works of film history ( Keaton, Eisenstein ) , experimental film ( Kenneth Anger , Stan Brakhage , Michael Snow), contemporary cinema (Naomi Kawase , Jean -Claude Rousseau, David Lynch ) , artist films ( Sarkis ) this book provides a map of the different states of cinema today in its relations with history and other arts.
