The department of Communications, Media, and Culture (School of Arts and Humanities) holds a conference for postgraduate research students on 4 December 2012. I will present a paper, which establishes the existing theories on Slow Cinema and in what ways I (dis)agree with them. Then, I will give a brief outline of an approach which I will expand further in my thesis. Film examples will show that slow-film directors borrow from the art of painting. This concerns both the importance of nature and the framing of characters.
More on this soon in the section Research.
