It’s a new year–time for a new outlook, and Fandor is making it easier to broaden your cultural horizons in 2015! Fandor’s expert team of film curators has carefully compiled the below e-book entitled “An Alternative Guide to the History of Cinema,” guiding its readers through the history of film (1894 to the present), opting to forgo well-known films in favor of exploring trends in film making through lesser-known independent titles.
ABOUT “AN ALTERNATIVE GUIDE TO THE HISTORY OF CINEMA”For those who’d like a one-stop beginner’s overview (or a refresher), Fandor has drawn on archives stretching back to the very beginning of movies to provide its own alternative guide to the history of cinema. Generally they avoided more obvious choices in favor of movies that encapsulated certain moments and trends in cinematic history.
Fandor hopes you find this idiosyncratic trip through motion picture history to be fun, informative and surprising. Moreso, they hope it inspires you to chart many more such voyages yourself, with Fandor’s deep cinematic library as one guiding resource. All of the films included in this guide are available to watch on Fandor.
