Cine Salon presents: Vertical Cinema?

Monday, May 3, 2021
7:00pm – 9:45pm

Let's consider a Vertical Cinema.

Is height better than width? Do vertical images play well sideways? Are there viable precedents? A look backwards to the beginnings of cinema (and other entertainment pursuits) will elucidate modern verticals in experiments by Tacita Dean and Damien Chazelle.
