Society of Cinema

According to the Cambridge Dictionary, an Atlas is defined as “a book containing maps […] showing where particular things are made, found, etc.” Hence one can have an atlas of fine wines, or an atlas of British plants. One could, by definition, also have an atlas of hip hop, an atlas of fine curries, or an atlas of myths.

The latter is what the Society of Cinema wants to create. Needs to create. This need is urgent. In the near future you won’t own or hold an atlas – you will pay a subscription to open it and turn its pages; you will rent the privilege of seeing the world and the things in it. And what those things are will be up to those who own the atlas, and what pages they deem more important or profitable…

The Society of Cinema plans to build own our Atlas, a collection of films that can be accessed and seen for free.
