A chronology of film : a cultural timeline from the magic lantern to the digital screen

Smith, Ian Haydn2021
Books
A Chronology of Film presents a fresh perspective on the medium by taking a purely chronological approach to its history, tracing the complex links between technical innovations, social changes and artistic interventions. Organized around a central timeline that charts the development of film from the earliest moving images to the present-day blockbusters, it features key films, together with commentaries and contextual information about the social, political and cultural events of the period in which they were produced. Special feature spreads highlight important technical developments and key practitioners. Covering a wide selection of genres, styles, and directors, it is invaluable as a comprehensive guide to film in all its different forms.
