Desire for cinema perhaps existed before its creation. Today, cinema can be thought as the umbrella term for the variety of moving images and time-based forms that currently circulate and which have intersecting, yet specific, histories of emergence. These encompass the changing technological and spatial forms themselves—from collective halls to handheld devices—in which cinema appears, as well as the movement and interpretation of cinemas throughout the world. Cinematic Migrations is a multi-faceted look at the role of cinema’s transmutations over time and its worldwide and circuitous shifts. This lecture series will take place in the ACT Cube, Wiesner Bldg (E15-001), Lower Level; 20 Ames Street; Cambridge, MA on Mondays (October 15th, 19th, November 5th, 19th, and 26th) from 7:00pm to 9:00pm. These lectures are free and open to the public. Lecturers and guests participating in this series will examine these terms in different ways, along with their own explorations.
