We pick short important texts and then assess their strengths and weaknesses. We focus on this from a collective standpoint, aiming to discuss the merits of the works from the view of modern film artists and/or those who appreciate (or want to appreciate) film art. We want people to come to our reading groups that know too much about film or know nothing.
This time around we're going to read stuff on the film Tout Va Bien, it is easily accessible-a DVD of the film is still on the market-but if there is an issue getting it email SHOOTINGWALLZINE@GMAIL.COM.
The document we're going to read with the film is:
Towards A Non-Bourgeois Camera Style by Brian Henderson
Printed versions of the documents are always available the day of the event for attendents, prior reading of them is only reccomended, and not a recquirement.
These are a fun time to basically just get together with movie lovers or those who want to love movies more and talk about movies.
If you have an idea for a future reading group:
When & Where
Shooting Wall is a Philadelphia based DIY public membership collective of film theorists, filmmakers, critics, and cinephiles.
