Product Description


'This translation of From Plato to Lumière will be greeted enthusiastically by English scholars who have not yet had the benefit of reading the work in its entirety, and will help to build an important bridge between French Quebec, France, and Anglo-American scholarship. The book's focus on early cinema, along with its theoretical precision, will make it required reading for all film courses and media scholars, and its publication in English will ensure that André Gaudreault's work finally gets the recognition it deserves.' (Janine Marchessault, Media & Culture, York University)
