The dimensions of a movie screen, the framing of a shot, and the motion or raise en scene it contains within that shot, all combine to make the screen a sort of monolith that can rehearse not just our myth of origin but the way all perception requires a prior enframement that permits a particular unconcealment, which registers a propriative event, which demarcates a point "before" that can be traced backwards and an "after" that can be traced forwards.
