"What is saved ..." Quote of John Berger

Tuesday, November 11, 2014
What is saved in the cinema when it achieves art is a spontaneous continuity with all mankind. It is not an art of the princes or the bourgeoisie. It is popular and vagrant. In the sky of the cinema people learn what they might have been and discover what belongs to them apart from their single lives.
John Berger
John Berger (b. 1926), British author, critic. repr. In Keeping a Rendezvous (1992). "Ev'ry Time We Say Goodbye," first published in Expressen (Stockholm, Nov. 3, 1990).
