Cinema Station

About

Jean-Luc Godard said that, “Cinema is the train, it is not the station.”  This blog is a place where thoughts and ideas about movies converge, where memories of film intersect with new discoveries… it is our Cinema Station.

Gus Edwards and Travis Mills
The Creators of Cinema Station


I am a film buff and sometimes film scholar. I started watching movies seriously in the Caribbean (St. Thomas, VI) where I grew up in the 1950s. For the past 22 years I had been teaching Film Studies (mostly Foreign and Independent) at Arizona State University where I am now a Professor Emeritus.  The composer/musician Duke Ellington once said; “Music is my mistress.” I will alter his statement a little and say: “Cinema is the love of my life.”

-Gus Edwards

I grew up watching the classics of cinema on VHS tapes on a small island off the coast of Africa.  Since then I have been obsessed with film, reading about and watching all of its varieties. I write fiction and direct movies, but one of my greatest pleasures in life is the expression of love and passion for my continuous journey through the past and living cinema.
