In the plethora of entertainment options, cinema continues to hold a special status, captivating and holding the viewer in a bond that is both personal and larger-than-life. What makes cinema important in an era of television and YouTube? What is the relationship between cinema and the viewer? Is film a reflection of reality or is reality a reflection of film?
