SchoolCinemaWeeks: The Art of Film Projection

POR PRIMERA VEZ, 1967

The work of film projectionist in the cinema usually takes place out of view – in the projection booth. This short film program to take part in introduces children to the job of the film projectionist and gives an introduction to the art of film projection. The film PREMIÈRE SÉANCE (France 1895/1995) about the legendary first cinema screening by the Lumière brothers in Paris in 1895 lays out the historical threads: in the early days of the cinema, the film projector was still set up in the auditorium and operated by a hand crank. The colorful, squeaking COLORFILM (Standish Lawder, USA 1972) shows how film strips turn into music when put through the film projector. In the Cuban documentary POR PRIMERA VEZ (Octavio Cortázar, Cuba 1967), a travelling cinema passes through the most remote corners of Cuba and brings films to people that have never been to the cinema. A truck serves as a projection booth and place for sleeping. Moderation: Stefanie Schlüter, classes: 1–3 (sts) (13.11.) An event as part of the SchoolCinemaWeeks. Registation necessary at schlueter@arsenal-berlin.de
