Abstract:

Alain Bergala's The cinema hypothesis is a seminal text on the potentials, possibilities, and problems of bringing film to schools and other educational contexts. It is also the passionate confirmation of a love for cinema and an effort to think of education differently. This book stages a dialogue between larger concepts of cinema and a hands-on approach to teaching cinema. Its detailed insights derive from the author's own experiences as a teacher, critic, filmmaker and advisor to the French Minister of Education. Bergala, who also served as chief editor of Cahiers du cinéma, promotes an understanding of film as an autonomous art form that has to be taught accordingly. Confronting young people with cinema can create friction with established norms and serve as a productive rupture for both institution and pupil: perhaps more than any other art form, the cinema enables a lived, intimate experience of otherness"--Back cover
