Abstract

This early film manifesto by Ricciotto Canudo argues that the emergence of cinema as a sixth art, as a “plastic art in motion,” arises from its fusion of science and art and from its ability to do the opposite of what painting does: instead of capturing a still moment, the cinema allows for the aesthetic documentation of velocity and movement, changing the way in which one represents the world and its elements, foreshadowing what Jim Davis would write about the cinema and art some forty years later (see Davis’s “The Only Dynamic Art,” in chap. 2 of this volume).
