Product Overview

Does the digital era spell the death of cinema as we know it? Or is it merely heralding its rebirth? Are we witnessing the emergence of something entirely new? "Cinema in the Digital Age" examines the fate of cinema in this new era, paying special attention to the technologies that are reshaping film and their cultural impact. Examining "Festen" (1998), "The Blair Witch Project" (1999), "Timecode" (2000), "Russian Ark" (2002), "The Ring" (2002), among others, this volume explores how these films are haunted by their analogue past and suggests that their signature element are their deliberate imperfections, whether those take the form of blurry or pixilated images, shakey camera work, or other elements reminding viewers of the human hand guiding the camera. Weaving together a rich variety of sources, "Cinema in the Digital Age" provides a deeply humanistic look at the meaning of cinematic images in the era of digital perfection.
