Live Blogging and the Cinema Experience

By Catherine Price

I am currently in the session ‘Coming out of the Shadows: Undocumented Youth, Art and Activism in the US’. I am finding that trying to live blog in this situation is really difficult! How do you convey what you are watching in a film in a blog post? I have tried taking some photos to convey what I am watching, but because of the cinema setting and the darkness, this is proving impossible. Trying to describe what I am watching is difficult because of the richness of films in front of me. I also realise that whilst I am trying to think of how to articulate what I am watching, I am becoming disengaged from the films. At the moment, the live blogging has my full attention as opposed to what I want to be watching and engaging with.
