Germaine Dulac – What is Cinema?


Almost 75 years after its creation, this is the first published edition of Germaine Dulac’s What is Cinema?

Composed of the cineaste’s lectures (1925 – 1939), compiled by her partner Marie-Anne Colson-Malleville, it illuminates the vital role of this pioneer of the 1920s French avant-garde, as an innovator of modern cinematic thought, who was reflecting, early on, in a sustained and analytical way about what cinema is.
