"Without light, there can be no knowing."
Jarrett Yawp thought he could "control the light." But he soon discovers that being a successful projectionist, the master manipulator of fantasy and reality behind the immersive new art form of the HoloPlay, means being able to comprehend—and control—far more than the simple reality in front of you.
What constitutes art in our ever-evolving consumer culture? How much control do we really exert over our own fates? Is time travel a scientific possibility? Der Filmvorfuhrer, the third novel from Frederick Barrows, poses these and other intriguing questions, while taking the reader on a whirlwind tour of some of the more obscure corners of film history.
