DOCSBARCELONA - International Documentary Film Festival


Peter Greenaway

“We are all aware that great changes are happening in the world of cinema and film - the old verities are no longer with us. The superstructures, infrastructures, audience participations, distribution patterns, audience
characteristics - as well as certainly the technologies are changing very fast . Each new technological gizmo or gimmick or toy or machine erodes the old edifice. The Old Cinema is dead.

This lecturetalk of NEW POSSIBILITIES is full of examples - multiple-screening, environmental screening, “immersion” screening, combinations of genre-manipulation, VJ-ing, presenttense- non-narrative-multi-image-cinema ventures, cinema deconstructions, cinema reconstructed deconstructions – all indicating a toe in the ocean of new possibilities that are rising up over all the horizons”.
Peter Greenaway
