Bara Cailín 1: 38 ‘Lev Kuleshov’

When Lev Kuleshov used pictures of babies, soup bowls and corpses to investigate the power of editing he could never ever have imagined that the end of the world would likely be brought about by the simple joining of two separate images.

Whilst Kuleshov and other filmmakers from the past were hoping that an understanding of editing films would open up a different understanding of the world around them the World was now facing the very real possibility that a different understanding of the power of editing was very likely to close down the world and end understanding forever.
