In this video writer/Director Paul Schrader wears a silly multi-camera outfit and muses that constant technological change of cinema’s form may prevent good films full of content.
If the form is changing, content can’t stabilize
You can’t make a revolutionary film in the middle of a revolution
My concern is that this period of transition that we’re going through
may not in fact be a transition at all
but a new status of permanent technological change
which never stabilizes, never resolves itself
to the point where content can again reign supreme
The video is part of the Venice Film Festival’s commissioned shorts on the future of cinema.
