By Robert L. Glynn / August 22, 2019 11:55:48I recently found out about a documentary called The Rise and Fall of Film History that is currently screening at the Toronto Film Festival.
I had no idea what it was about, but it is definitely worth your time and money to see it.
The film starts out with a trailer of a scene from the original short film The Rise And Fall of Cinema.
In this scene, Rebecca Mays is interviewing the founder of a film school and her friend Michael, about the history of film.
Rebecca M. talks about the importance of film as a medium, and Michael shares that the film was the most important medium in the world when he was in school.
The documentary ends with an interview with the director, Rebecca.
She describes the film as being about a story of cinema and its impact on our world today.
I love the way she describes how the film began, the way it went from being a very small film school, to becoming a major film school with all these talented students, to finally becoming a museum.
The documentary is incredibly insightful, and I have to recommend it highly.
If you love film, and you know nothing about film history, this documentary will take you to the depths of film culture, from its roots as a simple hobby to the current state of the film industry.
