What Is Cinema?

(Chuck Workman, 2013)

Academy Award–winning filmmaker Chuck Workman’s documentary tackles the question of its title through over 100 clips and new interviews with visionaries old and new, including Robert Altman, Robert Bresson, Alfred Hitchcock, Ken Jacobs, Abbas Kiarostami, David Lynch, Kelly Reichardt, and more. With newly commissioned sequences by past Wexner guests Lewis Klahr and Phil Solomon, the film not only asks what cinema has been, but also chronicles the best work being made today and proposes where cinema will, and should, go in the future. The result is a love letter to why we go to the movies, and why we’ll continue to do so. (80 mins., video)
