From Light to Byte: Toward an Ethics of Digital Cinema

Markos Hadjioannou


University of Minnesota Press

Hadjioannou, an assistant professor of literature, contrasts digital and celluloid cinema. Concerned with the debate surrounding digital cinema’s ontology and the interrelationship between cinema cultures, his book investigates the idea of change as it is expressed in the current technological transition. The author asks what is different in the way digital movies depict the world and engage with the individual and how we might best address the technological shift within media archaeologies.
