“Cinema as a work of art and a medium”

“How do we express ourselves through a moving image?” this was the question that began the training on “The cinematographic narrative”, given by Professor Nelson Zagalo.

The training course, carried out under the FCT PhD in Communication Studies: Technology, Culture and Society, aimed to “respond to the needs of the students of the program”, explained Anabela Carvalho, one of the organizers and director of the doctoral program.

Seeing “cinema as a work of art and a medium” was one of the key ideas advanced by Nelson Zagalo, in a formation that dealt with issues such as the importance and the communication of the narrative; the cinematographic narrative as a drama; the narrative myth; audience preferences; the management of information, among other points.
