Lecture - Tribute to Theo Angelopoulos

May 21, 2012

A lecture in English on Theo Angelopoulos delivered by the Jeanne H Smith Professor of Film and Media Studies of the University of Oklahoma, Andrew Horton....

Lecture - Tribute to Theo Angelopoulos

Building on his own research, which includes two published books and numerous essays on Angelopoulos’ films as well as over thirty years of interviews with the director, Dr. Horton will share the nature and importance of Angelopoulos’ films with clips from films including Eternity and a Day (1998), Ulysses’ Gaze (1995), and The Weeping Meadow (2004).  He will explore how Angelopoulos often brought the present, history and myth together in a single sequence or shot, thus offering us who live in a frenzied paced world, a “cinema of contemplation”, in which we as viewers are free to enter scenes and characters on a variety of levels that are not possible in the non-stop swift editing pace of most of contemporary Hollywood cinema.

Andrew Horton is an award winning screenwriter and author of twenty seven books on film, screenwriting, literature and culture including The Films of Theo Angelopoulos: A Cinema of Contemplation (Princeton U. Press, 1999).
