Francesco Casetti, recently named the Thomas E. Donnelley Professor of Film & Media Studies and the Humanities, offers a vision of the future of film in his new book, Lumière Galaxy: Seven Key Words for the Cinema to Come (Columbia, 2015). “The Lumière Galaxy is an exuberant, gracefully written book inviting us to understand the relocations, expansions, and reinventions of cinema and its possibly grand future in close, loving proximity to its rich past.” (Filmcomment)
