Lecture: "Historiography of a 'Lost' Cinema" by Nick Deocampo | November 24, 2016

CMC Research Brownbag presents Nick Deocampo's lecture, "Historiography of a 'Lost' Cinema: Issues to Consider" on November 24, 2016 (2-4pm) at Videotheque, UP Film Institute.

“How does one write the history of a ‘lost’ cinema?” The problematic surrounding Cebu’s “lost” cinema provides a daunting task for film historians desiring to write about a cinema whose films are lost, its filmmakers are gone and there is no reliable archive to consult about its past. Even the scant historiography available is uneven and in need of scrupulous scrutiny and validation. Considering the difficulties faced in historicizing Cebu’s “lost” film heritage, this talk will discuss key issues to consider in constructing the historiography of a cinema burdened with “absence” and “loss.”
