Murray Pomerance Lecture - Three Cinematic Gestures
This talk will examine three cinematic gestures, one from the 1940s, one from the 1970s, and one from the 2000s, in order to help open to discussion and observation the tiny delicacies, carefully composed, that make for the screen moment.
Murray Pomerance is an independent scholar living in Toronto. He is author of, most recently, Cinema, If You Please: The Memory of Taste, the Taste of Memory (2018), A Dream of Hitchcock (2019), The Man Who Knew Too Much (2016), and Moment of Action: Riddles of Cinematic Performance.
Lecture will be held in the Earl Dolive Theater of the Philip Weltner Library
