How has digital technology transformed the way we make, view, and understand film and moving image media today? This course examines the influence of digital media on film and visual culture over the past 25 years, from video games to virtual reality. Drawing on cinema studies, art history, architecture, and media studies we will historicize the radical shift brought about by digital media while engaging in debates over our post-digital, post-cinematic media culture. Ultimately, we will ask what comes after digitization as a moment or period in the history of the cinema, and whether the cinema still exists as a distinct technical medium or aesthetic practice.
