In a New Light: The Art of Widescreen Cinema followed by a screening of Pigs and Battleships

Overview

In a New Light is returning for a third season, starting in September 2019.This course consists of 6 lectures, each lecture being followed by a movie screening. In the lectures,we look at the techniques used by the great film- makers such as Hitchcock and Scorsese, we look at the effect of new technologies on cinematic style in The Art of Widescreen Cinema,we consider how cinema both reflects and influences the cultural and political status quo, with Russian Cinema of the 1950's, and the Cinema of Palestine,and we look at an icon of World Cinema, with a feature on Jeanne Moreau. Each lecture is followed by the screening of a movie which illustrates and enriches the lecture content. Famously, the widescreen format was once deemed to be fit only for snakes and funerals, but since the 1950s, generations of filmmakers have embraced the format. This richly illustrated lecture by Dr Pasquale Iannone (University of Edinburgh) examines the development of widescreen aesthetics through a wide variety of examples from across the globe, with a particular focus on Japanese New Wave cinema of the 1960s and directors such as Shohei Imamura.
