From past till present, a cinema archive
Workshop for children and teenagers
Excerpts from cinema classics help us understand the principles of the moving picture and truly feel man’s need to depict and analyze motion. In a simple manner, we discover along with our young audience how the cinema, starting as a medium of recording motion with the invention of the Lumiere brothers, evolved into art by Melies; how from silent movies we advanced to adding sound and colour; we learn about the importance of editing. Together we will try to understand how the different genres were created in the different civilizations in Europe, America, Japan and elsewhere. We also follow the development of types of cinema such as the documentary, animation, musical, film noire, western and so others.
