Synopsis

Following a screening of two of his seminal films, join RiverRun in a conversation with 2018 Master of Cinema honoree Chuck Workman, the esteemed Academy Award-winning film editor whose career has spanned six decades. What Is Cinema? is one of Workman’s most recent films, in which dozens of filmmakers voice their opinions on the titular question while looking beyond the Hollywood mainstream to independent, experimental, documentary and avant-garde films. The film will be preceded by Workman’s Academy Award-winning short film from 1986 Precious Images. Comprised of approximately 470 half-second-long splices of movie moments through the history of American film, the film pushes the audience into a kind of trance and takes them on a journey into their individual memories of great films of the 20th century. 35mm print of Precious Images courtesy of UNCSA Moving Image Archives
