This was an amazing treat for us.
To sit and listen to an Academy Award Winner give a presentation about the nature of cinema, it's beginnings and where it might be headed was definitely one of the highlights of our trip. And one of the perks...it was free. I could try and explain what Mr. Murch talked about in greater detail, but it's too big a topic for me to lay out here. Luckily, I discovered that someone had taped the event and posted it on youtube. Below is part one of the lecture we attended at the Filmmaker Lodge.
