VIE ET MORT DE L’IMAGE

Synopsis

The power of the image has become decisive, but we should step backwards to understand it. Outlining the history of the Western eye from cave drawings up to digital screens, is the ambition of this documentary adapted from the book “Rise and Fall of the Image : a History of the Western Glance”. The challenge consists in entering through images in the image’s back stage, in turn religious, artistic and audiovisual. Our glance on images was magical before becoming artistic. It now becomes economic. Hence the cutting up in three parts : from the grotto to the cathedral – from the cathedral to the museum – from the museum to the screen
