Oh and we're on The Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/Cin...

Welcome to Film School... 'D... where we cover everything film to what it all means to how things even get made to why they get made to who makes them and we do it all with some animation and a laissez faire attitude. Because history already happened, so what's the rush?

Every other Wednesday, come back to Cinefix to check out Film School'd where we only scratch the surface of the bizarre history of moviemaking and films, stories that don't exist in a vacuum, but involve countries, wars, atom bombs, car crashes, samurais, boats, organized crime, unorganized crime, easy riders, a sled, lovers good and bad, and well... you get it. We cover everything from the zeotrope to this video and the future.

WATCH AND LEARN, BITCHES.
