Technically, the word itself derives from the ancient Greek, kinema, meaning movement. Historically, it’s a shortened version of French cinematography, an invention of two brothers, Auguste and Louis Lumiere, that combined kinema with another Greek root, graphein, meaning to write or record. But cinema is much more than the intersection of art and technology.
It is, more importantly, a powerful medium of communication. Like language itself, cinema is a surrounding and enveloping substance that carries with it what it means to be human in a specific time and place.
That is to say, it mediates our experience of the world, helps us make sense of things, and in doing so, often helps shape the world itself. It’s why we often find ourselves confronted by some extraordinary event and find the only way to describe it is: “It was like a movie.”
After all, nice talk, let’s dive into the ocean and see what the best comedy movies of 2019 have for you.
