Reminder: Radical Form and Content Discussion Tuesday Feb. 28th at 7pm

Greetings Soldiers and Cinephiles,

This is a reminder that tomorrow evening (Tuesday Feb. 28th) at 7pm, Shooting Wall will be presenting a talk on the history of film theory, form, and radical cinema. This talk will be an overview of the history of film theory with an emphasis on radical form and content. We will also be discussing some of the possibilities for the future of filmmaking, distribution, and criticism. The talk is aimed at those with little or no knowledge of film history, who are interested in learning more, but can also be appreciated by those who already have an understanding. The talk will be punctuated by film clips and we will be providing lists of recommended films for viewing and theorists for reading. This talk is Shooting Wall's attempt to re-open the public discussion about film form and film theory, which we see as virtually non-existent in the mainstream or in the pages of newspapers and magazines. We want to take these discussions out of the academy and place them back into the world of cinema. We hope this talk will lead to further discussion in the city and a growing community of people interested in watching, discussing, and then making great and new cinema. The talk begins at 7pm and will be held at the Wooden Shoe on 704 South Street. Please see the link below for more information. We hope to see everyone there!
