Peter Greenaway: Cinema is Dead, Long Live Cinema

Peter Greenaway on “New Possibilites: Cinema is dead, Long live Cinema!”, a lecture at the Berkeley University on new and different ways of thinking about and making cinema.

Greenaway starts his talk with a brief history of cinema, with its invention, highest peak and disintegrating, questions the categories, in which we think about cinema and names the boundaries we have put on it: text-based film-making, actors and even the camera. Greenaway then presents some of his projects as examples of what else can be created though cinema as a medium such as the The Tulse Luper Suitcases or Writing on Water.

I would recommend this video to all interested in art and film history, new media, intermediality and of course to all Peter Greenanway fans :)
