"Cinema is a medium that can translate ideas." - David Lynch

  • From Méliès to New Media: Spectral Projections.
  • From Méliès to New Media is an exploration of the presence and importance of film history in digital culture.
  • It presents a comparative examination of pre-cinema and new media: early film experiments with contemporary music videos; silent films and their digital restorations; German Expressionist film and post-noir cinema; French Gothic film and the contemporary digital remake; and more.
    Using a media archaeology approach, author Wendy Haslem demonstrates that new media forms are not only indebted to but firmly embedded within the traditions and conventions of early film culture.
