You are kindly invited to a talk by Professor Murray Pomerance (Ryerson University, Toronto)  entitled ‘Antonioni Reporting’ at Royal Holloway on Monday, 27 October at 6pm (Windsor Seminar Room 1-02). There will be a reception afterwards.  

The event is hosted by the School of Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures and the Department of Media Arts at Royal Holloway.

Murray Pomerance is a prolific film scholar who has written extensively on film, the cinematic experience and performance. His publications include The Eyes Have It: Cinema and the Reality Effect (2013), Alfred Hitchcock’s America (2013), Michelangelo Red, Antonioni Blue: Eight Reflections on Cinema (2011), The Horse Who Drank the Sky: Film Experience Beyond Narrative and Theory (2008) and several more monographs, numerous edited and co-edited collections and fiction. 

In his talk ‘Antonioni Reporting’, Murray Pomerance will consider modes of approach to visual art in terms of "enchanting" and "reportorial" creative and receptive posture in relation to artists such as Da Vinci, Sheeler, Estes, and O. W. Link. This is followed by an intensive examination of Michelanglo Antonioni's techniques of using, and playing with, reportorial configurations in La Notte, The Passenger, Blow-Up, Identification of a Woman, Eros, Beyond the Clouds, and other films. , and other films.   Contact daniela.berghahn@rhul.ac.uk for any queries. 

The department also hosts a series of lunchtime and evening seminars as well as a series of seminars related to ADAPT. We also co-host the London Screenwriting Seminar and the Modernism and Film Seminar.
