THE FIRST SEPARATE EDITION OF MALRAUX'S IMPORTANT ESSAY ON THE PLACE OF CINEMA AMONG THE OTHER ART FORMS. Along with being resistance leader, revolutionary, novelist, art theorist and Minister of Cultural Affairs; André Malraux was also a film director. Following his experience filming the movie "Hope", Malraux crafted this essay about the place of cinema among the other arts, as well as the links between cinema, literature and theater. He ends with the now famous observation, "par ailleurs le cinéma est une industrie", concluding that the cinema is an industry. The work has grown to become indispensable reading to film buffs, historians, producers, directors, actors, and lovers of literature alike. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
