Cinema Station

Carlos Fuentes | November 23, 2010

Of all the art forms of the 20th Century, none is quite so startlingly reflective of its age as cinema. Painting, architecture, sculpture, and music all descended from the past, paid it tribute, and reinvented it. Film is the only art form that belongs exclusively to the twentieth century. Its aesthetic and literary debts are massive. But the very presence of the cinematic image , the creation it inspires and the mythology it weaves have had perhaps the deepest influence of any art form on the identity of our times.
– Carlos Fuentes (Novelist and philosopher)
