Abstract:

Because of the advent of film and television, the 20th Century, which will soon come to an end, has become the first century in which image and sound can be recorded using technical AV methods. This is a great revolution and an enormous benefit with far-reaching historical significance. With the appearance of multimedia and the Internet, the AV arts of the 21st Century will develop even more rapidly. Everybody can shoot pictures and everybody can use the new technologies. They will change all aspects of the lifestyle and the living environment of human beings.

However, what will we film? What will we see in the next century? Will our images be as varied and colorful as in the 20th Century? Can art film continue to survive as the envoy of the colorful cultures of nations all over the world? This is a problem worth stressing and researching, and I would like to spend some time today sharing my thoughts on these topics.
