A dizzying journey since 1895 as its milestone; from the time cinema emerged as a gigantic industrial, artistic and cultural sphere; until today. This seminar explores the cinema of different periods and geographies, focusing on the technology of the invention, the socio-cultural and economic conditions that the films are produced, cinematographic language, the artistic approaches that use film as a medium and means of production as well as the history of its audiences.
