What are primers?
If you're like most people, you've probably heard of the French New Wave or Dogme95, but when asked at a party to explain what they are or to name more than a couple of films, you may struggle a little bit. Well, fear not! Going along with GreenCine's belief that DVDs are not just entertainment but film-schools-in-a-box, we're happy to introduce you to our own form of film education: Primers. They are meant to be a fun introductory overview of major film genres and movements, and to serve as handy guides in your rental selection process.
The primers, written by a mix of GreenCine staff writers and outside experts, will highlight the representative films of each genre available at GreenCine (while occasionally also wistfully mentioning those that are not yet available on DVD).
More primers coming soon!
