Cinema Across Media: The 1920s

Rated NR

This conference will examine cinema's institutional consolidation in the '20s, when practitioners were enlisted from many other fields such as architecture, design, painting, music, and vaudeville, resulting in a transformation of established media. Avant-garde cinemas borrowed extensively from a variety of artistic practices, while the "cinematic" became the new standard for other Modernist aesthetics and popular culture. Presentationsof films from the height of the silent era will feature film scholars Anne Nesbet, Gertrud Koch and Paolo Cherchi Usai as well as the talented Judith Rosenberg on piano.
