TWO BASIC WORDS

Film is a medium,  from the Latin word for “middle” It mediates between the original idea or phenomenon and the audience. From SUBJECT to OBJECT.

It evokes an aesthetic response in the viewer, from the Greek aisthetikos “sensitive, perceptive, from aisthanesthai to perceive (by the senses or by the mind), to feel

The “Aesthetic” experience is a complicated one, involving the connections between what is taken in by the senses (vision, hearing, smell, taste, touch) with the emotions and the intellect. It involves ideas of beauty, style, ugliness, morality, social class, religion, and much, much more.

All human beings are aesthetic beings.
