Lights, Camera, Action: Brain & Cinema
Can the rhythm of films influence brain development in children? Can it be used to induce sleep in adults? These are some of the questions that will be addressed following the screening of Lois Patiño's award-winning feature, Samsara. This meditative work offers an immersive audiovisual experience and a springboard for a discussion about the impact of cinema on the brain. Université de Montréal professor Santiago Hidalgo will bring together researchers from different fields such as child development, neurology, and film theory to exchange on how the very structure of a film can play on our minds and health.
