Cinevenger is about looking at the photography of a film and peeling back the layers of visual meaning that have been created both consciously and unconsciously by the filmmakers. This is done from two perspectives: looking at the photography of previously released films, and also examining the efforts of cinematographers photographing films currently in production.
