Marking the centennial of the birth of the French film critic and thoerist André Bazin, Bazin@100 seeks to assess the current situation of thinking about his work as both a historical figure and a media theorist whose work remains vital to thinking about cinema (and other media) today. Showcasing Hervé Joubert-Laurencin's feature-length reconstruction of Bazin's unfinished film, as well as the upcoming publication of Bazin Écrits, the conference brings together a range of scholars working on different aspects of Bazin's work and its implications.
