Presented by Liquid Architecture and Alliance Française de Melbourne

In this lecture at the Alliance Française de Melbourne, leading French composer, filmmaker, historian and writer, Michel Chion will speak to the audio-visuality of historical and contemporary French cinema, drawing out ideas from his recent publication, Le Complexe de Cyrano. Following the talk will be a discussion with James Hewison, Head of Film Programs, ACMI.

Since the 1980s, Chion has written extensively on the relationship of sound and image in the cinema, publishing in 1990 what many consider the definitive theoretical guide to the subject, Audio-Vision: Sound on Screen. In this momentous book, Chion advances a whole new lexicon for describing audio-visual concepts, via the works of Jacques Tati, Alfred Hitchcock, Jean-Luc Godard and others. On reading, film scholar Claudia Gorbman was moved to name him “a poet in theoretician’s clothing.”
