Cinema @ Art in Conversation seminar series

ArC: Art in Conversation seminar on cinema will be held this Friday October, 15 at 3.30-5.00pm (UK time). We will discuss the cinematic experience from a multidisciplinary point of view, trying to address fundamental issues, such as: How do we cognitively and emotionally engage with films and visual storytelling? Which are the embodied mechanisms that are activated while we watch moving images?
