Week 5:
This Friday, May 12th, 2006

Abstracted from narrative purpose or emotional intention, camera motion
through space urges the viewer to meditate on the motion itself. The
more extreme it is, the more apparent it becomes that an image can
indeed affect our body.

Guest speaker: Film Professor Chuck Kleinhans, Northwestern University

WARNING: Tonight’s films contain extreme, constant motion. Those who
become dizzy or disoriented from such motion may be at risk.

All screenings are at Block Cinema, located in the Pick-Laudati
Auditorium in the Mary and Leigh Block Museum of Art, Northwestern
University, 40 Arts Circle Drive, Evanston, IL 60208.

Tickets are $6, or $4 for Block Museum members, students with ID, and
