The Worlds of Cinema

Film has been a focus of the Einstein Forum for years. Driving this interest is the way film creates not just a visual world but a space of experience that activates all our senses. How does this space affect our reality? How does it shape the way we perceive the world and what we consider true? How do directors explore the limits of perception? How do the boundaries between their lives and their art overlap?
