Dreams in celluloid

Posted on: June 6, 2013

DVD stand close upLast week BBC Radio 4’s Today Programme broadcast Goodbye to 35mm Cinema  focusing on three cinema projectionists’ reflections on the death of 35mm film and the move to digital film.

If you’re a film fan then there’s no film that encapsulates the 35mm celluloid story better than Tornatore’s Cinema Paradiso.  Set in Sicily the film tells the story of Tornatore’s childhood where he befriends the local film projectionist.  Read the review and full cast on the Internet Movie Database’s Cinema Paradiso page.

As a student or staff member at Hillcroft College you can borrow this DVD from our Learning Resources Centre for free.
