The Master Says 320

Everything that moves on the screen is cinema. A film designed to teach children the alphabet as has much claim to be considered cinema as a grandiose production with psychological pretensions. In my view cinema is nothing but a new form of printing - another form of the total transformation of the world through knowledge. Louis Lumiere was another Gutenberg. His invention caused as many disasters as the dissemination of thought through books.
