Film and the Arts in Symbiosis (1988)

Film and the Arts in Symbiosis book cover
This book examines the key relationships and abundant interconnections between motion pictures and radio, television, video art, the new media technologies, literature, theatre, painting, the graphic arts, photography, classical music, and popular music.

It takes an exploratory, yet systematic look at the interdisciplinary nature of the film medium and both highlights and comprehensively describes and analyzes this multi-faceted tradition.
