Robert Burgoyne’s Lecture – Forms of Time and Chronotope in the Wall Street Film

 

Robert Burgoyne gave a lecture entitled “Forms of Time and Chronotope in the Wall Street Film” at Cinepoetics, Center for Advanced Film Studies in Berlin. The talk, which took place on Wednesday, November 30, 2016, focused on the mediality of the Wall Street film, connecting and contrasting the utopian sense of inclusion and transparency that greeted the invention of the “stock ticker” in the early 20th century, and the very different media representation of global finance in film and media today.
