Cinema by design : Art nouveau, modernism, & film history / Fischer, Lucy
New York: Columbia University Press, 2017.
Author: Fischer, Lucy Place: New York Publisher: Columbia University Press PubDate: 2017 PhysDes: xvi, 265 pages, 16 unnumbered pages of plates ; 24 cm. Subject: MODERNISM AND THE CINEMA; MOVEMENTS AND STYLES IN FILM HISTORY; FILM HISTORY; RACE AND THE CINEMA; ARCHITECTURE AND THE CINEMA; ART AND THE CINEMA Summary: Art Nouveau thrived from the late 1890s through the First World War. The international design movement reveled in curvilinear forms and both playful and macabre visions and had a deep impact on cinematic art direction, costuming, gender representation, genre, and theme. Though historians have long dismissed Art Nouveau as a decadent cultural mode, its tremendous afterlife in cinema proves otherwise. In Cinema by Design, Lucy Fischer traces Art Nouveau's long history in films from various decades and global locales, appreciating the movement's enduring avant-garde aesthetics and dynamic ideology. Fischer begins with the portrayal of women and nature in the magical "trick films" of the Spanish director Segundo de Chomon; the elite dress and decor design choices in Cecil B. DeMille's The Affairs of Anatol (1921); and the mise-en-sc ne of fantasy in Raoul Walsh's The Thief of Bagdad (1924). Reading Salome (1923), Fischer shows how the cinema offered an engaging frame for adapting the risque works of Oscar Wilde and Aubrey Beardsley. Notes: Includes bibliographical references and index.

"Nezar AlSayyad traces the dissolution of the boundary between real and reel through time and space via a series of films that represent different modernities. He contrasts the 'rational' European city of early twentieth-century industrial modernity as portrayed by Berlin: Symphony of a Big City (1927) with its American counterpart in Modern Times (1936). He illustrates the different forms of small town life and an urbanizing modernity across the Atlantic as exemplified by Cinema Paradiso (1989) and It's a Wonderful Life (1946). Using Metropolis (1927) and Brazil (1985), he shows how utopian ideals harbour within them their dystopian realities, while Jacques Tati's nostalgia for tradition in Mon Oncle (1958) and Playtime (1967) reveals a cynical modernity and a rebelling against its idealism." "AlSayyad argues that the postmodern city of Blade Runner (1982) and Falling Down (1993) illustrates some of the urban outcomes of a globalizing economy.
Turning to spectacle and surveillance, he examines Rear Window (1954), Sliver (1993), and The End of Violence (1997) as a voyeuristic modernity. To understand the city experienced by individuals of different social backgrounds, he takes Manhattan (1979), Annie Hall (1977), and Taxi Driver (1976), while Do the Right Thing (1989) and My Beautiful Laundrette (1985) are used to explore a modernity of race and ethnicity. Finally, he uses Pleasantville (1998) and The Truman Show (1998) to unpack the hyperreality of exurban postmodernity and to demonstrate how today the real and the reel have become mutually constitutive." "By considering how the real city and the reel city reference each other in an act of mutual representation and definition, this book advances the discussion on cinematic space and theories of the city."--BOOK BLURB.

The conference is part of University of Liverpool's contribution to the European Capital of Culture 2008, and aims to foster interdisciplinary dialogues around architectural and film history and theory, film and urban space, and to point towards new intellectual frameworks for discussion. It seeks to draw on the work of theorists and practitioners engaged in ideas in these areas, examining film in the context of urban design and development and exploring in particular the contested social, cultural and political terrain that underpins these practices. We particularly welcome contributions on non-fiction film, documentaries, actuality and amateur film, the influence of film on urban and architectural design, and the role of film in the construction of virtual environments and spaces of memory Notes: Includes bibliographical references ISBN: 9780955788413 Donation: Deb Verhoeven More info

Urban Australia and post-punk : exploring Dogs in Space / edited by David Nichols and Sophie Perillo

Call No: 79 DOG URB Author: Nichols, David; Perillo, Sophie Edition: 2020 Place: Singapore Publisher: Palgrave Macmillan PubDate: 2020 PhysDes: xviii, 338 pages : illustrated ; 22 cm Subject: DOGS IN SPACE (AT, Richard Lowenstein, 1986); MUSIC AND THE CINEMA; ARCHITECTURE AND THE CINEMA Summary: Richard Lowenstein’s 1986 masterpiece Dogs in Space was and remains controversial, divisive, compelling and inspirational. Made less than a decade after the events it is based on, using many of the people involved in those events as actors, the film explored Melbourne’s ‘postpunk’ counterculture of share houses, drugs and decadence. Amongst its ensemble cast was Michael Hutchence, one of the biggest music stars of the period, in his acting debut.
This book is a collection of essays exploring the place, period and legacy of Dogs in Space, by people who were there or who have been affected by this remarkable film. The writers are musicians, actors and artists and also academics in heritage, history, urban planning, gender studies, geography, performance and music. This is an invaluable resource for anyone passionate about Australian film, society, culture, history, heritage, music and art. -- publisher's web site ISBN: 9789813297012 Contents: Introduction - Perillo, Sophie -- If You Were a Freak, You Were Equally Excluded -- Sejavka, Sam - It Was Filmic -- Farnan, Peter - I Was In-Between Two Worlds -- Clifforth, John - The B-Side of a Single?
