Tatia Skhirtladze: On Cinematic Experience

Mentor: John Heymans

Independent reviewer: Jorinde Seijdel

Enschede, 2008


In this thesis I discuss the cinematic experience on the basis of visual examples and theoretical discourse. The work is an attempt to outline this notion and to grasp some of its "definite" manifestations. Beyond other aspects, I will focus on cinematic experience as the experience of simultaneity of watching and thinking. In addition, this thesis is a written and visual record of my own experiences and interests in relation to the topic.
