1895 - 1923: Birth of Cinema

with a particular focus on avant-garde filmmaking...

British Cinema is born

I often associate myself to a particular archetypal rebel of modernity after refusing over ten to fifteen invitations from friends and classmates on the premiere of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince due sometime this week (or is it this coming Saturday). Instead, i found myself obsessed with early 1900s films. My fascination with avant-garde filmmaking (here and here) achieved orgasm after watching another Vertov, his masterpiece, Man with a Movie Camera (1929).
