“Offering an extensive and systematic exploration of screen practices in the 1930s, Ariel Rogers recharacterizes this seemingly solid, coherent era by analyzing its multiplicity and heterogeneity. The screen becomes a kaleidoscopic reality.”
~ Francesco Casetti, author of The Lumière Galaxy: Seven Key Words for the Cinema to Come
