What is Cinema?

Canada, France, United States | 2013 | Chuck Workman

What is Cinema?

In his new feature, Academy Award winner Chuck Workman (long known for his clip reels for the annual Oscars telecast) tackles a question asked by the late, legendary French film critic André Bazin: what is cinema? For answers, Workman conducted interviews with great living filmmakers like David Lynch and Mike Leigh and intercut their responses with archival interviews with deceased directors (Hitchcock, Bresson, et al.) as well as with 100+ film clips. What Is Cinema? will be preceded at showtime by Workman’s Oscar-winning 1986 masterpiece Precious Images, made for the 75th anniversary of the Director’s Guild of America.
