Short Description: 

The Power of Montage looks at the power of montage historically and its potential usage to advance our social justice goals.

This workshop will introduce the concept of montage and the idea that one way in which meaning is produced in cinema is through the juxtaposition of one image against another, and by image against sound. We will look at the historical context of Soviet Cinema in which filmakers (Kuleshev, Eisentein, etc.) developed montage and then we'll create our own montage.
