OR
Cinema wasn’t created or invented. It was discovered by D.W. Griffith, who is called the “Father of Cinema.” Take a look from the first close up, (early films looked like stage plays), to the first chase scene with intercutting, to the addition of brilliant musical scores. Drawing from a huge archive, you’ll see selections from early and late Griffith films that will astound and increase your understanding and enjoyment of film technique.
