Color is the perception of an electromagnetic wave vibrating at a
particular frequency. Harnessing color for aesthetic purposes, the
filmmakers in this program are fully aware of the delicate ways our
brain perceives color, as well as the ways celluloid articulates it.

Guest speaker: Film Professor Brian Price, Oklahoma State University
