Through this theoretical workshop, you will discover the multiple techniques and components that contribute to the narrative fluidity of a fiction film.The course will be illustrated by concrete examples taken from the filmography of experienced editor and director Omar Elhamy.

The workshop will be given in French but questions may be asked in English.
