Lumière and Company Film Screening at UCR Sweeney Art Gallery

Film Screening

Following The Great Picture panel discussion, there will be a screening of “Lumière and Company,” France, 1995, 88 mins. 40 international directors were asked to make a short film using the original Cinematographe invented by the Lumière Brothers, working under conditions similar to those of 1895. There were three rules: (1) The film could be no longer than 52 seconds, (2) no synchronized sound was permitted, and (3) no more than three takes. The results run the gamut from Zhang Yimou’s convention-thwarting joke to David Lynch’s bizarre miniature epic. The film is followed by a discussion with “The Great Picture” exhibition curator Stallings and artists behind the making of “The Great Picture.”


Admission: $9.99 per person.
