The Bright Lights Film Series is back in lights, camera, action for the Fall 2014 semester. The first movie, playing at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, is What is Cinema? by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Chuck Workman. This documentary takes on one of the most popular majors at Emerson, and questions everything about it. Where has film been in the past decades, and where is it going to go next? Afterward, you can enjoy a discussion with two visual and media arts professors, Kathryn Ramey and Miranda Banks. Get ready to be quiet on the set and learn about the talkies.
