Cinema Rediscovered Presents… ‘The Invisible Machine’ – a talk on film digitisation

Join Graeme Hogg from the Cube Cinema and Nachleben Experimental Film Archive for a talk about the processes involved in digitising some nitrate film that was found in our own archive here at Curzon Cinema & Arts.

Graeme’s interest has been in trying to re-instate the presence of the projector mechanism in digital ‘versions’ in the form of ‘flicker’ and this has lead to some curious, strange and unexpected detours into frequency. As well as a deep examination of the film projector mechanism, this talk also looks at what makes digital and analogue fundamentally different visual experiences.

This talk will be held upstairs in our gallery, unfortunately due to the amount of stairs customers with mobility issues may not be able to access it.
