Sunday, February 12 / 11 am
This session will highlight the craft of cinematography as it is used to illustrate America's history.
The imagery of Ken Burns’s films has become an iconic part of America’s culture. The Ken Burns Effect - panning across historic photographs - makes long forgotten faces come hauntingly alive. Awe-inspiring images of famous landscapes - sunset on a Civil War cannon, rays of light piercing the clouds to kiss the monumental masonry of the Brooklyn Bridge, purple clouds illuminating the snow-capped mountains in Yosemite - deepen our connection to the American landscape.
Speakers to be announced at a later date.
