This film screened on Tuesday 10th March 2015.
Ever since the Lumière Brothers pointed their camera at workers leaving the factory in 1895, the cinematographer’s endeavour to record movement with light remains at the heart of any film. Drawing on Bertolucci’s classic, concerning a fascist minion in 1930s Italy, director of photography Baz Al-Rawi will explore how the director and cinematographer Vittorio Storaro combine the elements of light, shadow, camera movement and mise-en-scène to expressionistic and highly influential effect.
