      PV Film: “Lumiere and Company”

      The Varsity has formed a partnership with an SIUC professor to continue its Peripheral Vision Film Series. "Running Time: Exploring the Nature of Shorts and Feature Films" is presented each Wednesday evening for six weeks. Walter Metz will explore the concept of duration in storytelling and will screen a film that illustrates the problems narrative artists encounter when deciding how and why to begin and end their work. After each screening, Metz will lead a discussion of each film. Here’s this week’s film: Nov. 13, “Lumière and Company” (1995) In 1895, Auguste and Louis Lumière invented the Cinématographe camera and projector, which revolutionized filmmaking into the art form we know today. A century later, this anthology film was commissioned to honor their contribution to the arts. Forty of the world’s best filmmakers, including Spike Lee and David Lynch, created shorts just like the Lumières. The only requirements were that they had to be under a minute, could not have synchronized sound, and cannot be more than three takes. Trailer Tickets are not available in advance at the venue but can be purchased on the night of each filming when doors and the Varsity Bar open at 6:30.
