Slow Cinema - a video essay


This video essay, made by GFT Youth Board member Simona, takes us through the world of Slow Cinema. This is where filmmakers encourage audiences to take their time and absorb the scene, rather than bombard them with images, special effects and visual distractions.

Simona states that "'Slow Cinema' was introduced to me as a concept at University on a course I took last year and I was really struck by it. I think sometimes it is a bit overlooked as a genre - it's often thought to be boring and not entertaining enough, but I believe it is a powerful form of art that as a genre has the potential to greatly affect whoever watches it."
