The works selected for Cinematology are films about films that offer insight into cinema. Along with works that explore the worlds of legendary filmmakers as Buster Keaton, Ingmar Bergman, Theo Angelopoulos, Jean-Claude Brisseau, and Hal Ashby, we encounter cinematographer Robby Muller and Ziva Postec, the editor behind Claude Lanzmann’s Holocaust documentary Shoah . Observing their lives means looking into the nature of cinema, as each one of them wrote an important chapter in the history of cinema in the 20th century. More interestingly, the director of The Great Buster: A Celebration is none other than Peter Bogdanovich, one of the most acclaimed filmmakers of our time. Letter to Theo and Brisseau - 251 Marcadet Street were produced by a director and a cinematographer respectively. These films are passionate love letters from contemporary filmmakers addressed to some of the greatest filmmakers in the past. This, in turn, makes us consider where today’s cinema must be headed. The old history of cinema is transformed into a brand new history at the hands of contemporary directors. New cinematic perspectives overlapping with old ones create a unique experience for today’s audience. This is a mark of love and respect towards endless cinematic imagination.
