A.; DAYBREAK EXPRESS; PRIMARY (US, Richard Leacock, Terry Macartney-Filgate, Albert Maysles and D.A. Pennebaker, 1961); DONT LOOK BACK (US, D.A. Pennebaker, 1967); MONTEREY POP (US, D. A. Pennebaker, 1968) Summary: "This volume is the first book-length study of the extensive career and prolific works of D.A. Pennebaker, one of the pioneers of direct cinema, a documentary form that empahasizes observation and a straightforward portrayal of events. With a career spanning decades, Pennebaker's many projects have included avant-garde experiments (Daybreak Express), ground-breaking television documentaries (Primary), celebrity films (Dont Look Back), concert films (Monterey Pop), and innovative fusions of documentary and fiction (Maidstone). Exploring the concept of 'performing the real,' Keith Beattie's insightful analysis interprets Pennebaker's films as performances in which the act of filming is in itself a performative transgression of the norms of purely observational documentary. He examines the ways in which Pennebaker's presentation of unscripted everyday performances is informed by connections between documentary filmmaking and other experimental movements such as the New American Cinema. Through his collaborations with such various artists as Richard Leacock, Shirley Clarke, Norman Mailer, and Jean-Luc Godard, Pennebaker has continually reworked and redefined the forms of documentary filmmaking. This book also includes a recent interview with the director and a full filmography" -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Includes bibliographical references (p.163-169) and index ISBN: 9780252078293 Contents: -- acknowledgements -- performing the real -- concert film -- collaborative filmmaking -- portraiture -- rehearsal -- interview with D.A.

A.; VERTOV, DZIGA; VIGO, JEAN; DONT LOOK BACK (US, D.A. Pennebaker, 1967) Summary: "Not all documentary films and videos are sober depictions of the real world. Documentary representations can present expressive, entertaining and spectacular images. This book examines such innovative approaches as they occur within the process of 'documentary display' - a practice which emphasises the visual attractions of documentary representation. Works of documentary display explore modes of exhibitionistic 'showing' in which sensation is frequently the vehicle of cognition and knowledge. Such a display is analysed within the popular and prominent forms of found-footage film, 'rockumentary', the city film, nonfiction surf film and video, and certain views of natural science topics. This accessible and informed study - with its focus on entertaining, popular, spectacular and sensational froms of nonfiction representation - makes an important contribution to theoretical analyses of documentary film and video."--BOOK JACKET Notes: Includes bibliographical references (p. 155-181) and index.

Dont look back / by Keith Beattie

A.; DONT LOOK BACK (US, D.A. Pennebaker, 1967) Summary: "The award-winning film Dont Look Back (1967) captures Bob Dylan on tour and on the cusp of change in 1965. Dylan was rapidly shedding his image as a folk musician and being reborn as a rock persona – and D. A. Pennebaker was there to record this fascinating transformation.
This insightful book charts the ways in which Pennebaker revised aspects of observational 'direct cinema', a style of film-making that he helped to pioneer, in order to represent in innovative ways Dylan's onstage performances and backstage actions. Keith Beattie's perceptive and nuanced analysis explains the relationship between 'pose' and the performative presentation of 'persona',
which forms the basis of the film's portrayal, and explores Pennebaker's relationship with Dylan in the film-making process. In doing so, the book highlights many remarkable moments from Dont Look Back and demonstrates how this landmark film eschewed the informationalism of the documentary form, revealing a captivating portrait of its beguiling subject" -- BOOK BACK COVER Notes: Formerly CIP; Includes bibliographical references ISBN: 9781844577613 Contents: -- acknowledgments -- prologue: on a prologue -- 1 Portraiture, Performance and Collusion -- 2 Screen Test -- 3 Hanging Out -- 4 `You Don't Need a Weatherman' -- 5 Casting a Spell -- afterimages -- notes -- credits -- More info
