Summary
This film advances an interesting thesis: if the static visual arts affected early cinema's vocabulary, did moving pictures inspire Cubism's two towering giants, Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque? Cinema and Cubism were born during the birth of modernity itself, and filmmaker Arne Glimcher argues that films, from the earliest days of Thomas Edison and the Lumière Brothers, were a crucial formative influence on Modern painting, particularly on Picasso and Braque. The movies' revolutionary portrayal of time, space, and motion was the engine behind the modernist revolution in fine art. Through interviews with art historians, practicing plastic and visual artists, poets, and filmmakers, it traces the effects of technological revolution--specifically the invention of aviation and the creation of cinema--and their interdependent influence on the art dubbed Modern
