“Aurality of the Long Take”

  1. Friday October 18 5:00pm
Earl V. Moore Building, Glenn E. Watkins Lecture Hall

Long takes, those uncommonly protracted stretches of uncut film, have been celebrated, imitated and collected since film’s beginnings as markers of virtuosic cinematography and of directorial style. This paper will reopen the matter of the long take in terms of aurality: the space defined by the camera is also always a place of sound, which establishes precise economies of hearing and seeing.
