Using the dialectic of colour and monochrome as a starting point, Paul Coates explores the symbolic meanings that colour bears in different cultures, and engages with a range of critical approaches to filmic colour, building on the work of such theorists as Sergei Eisenstein, Rudolf Arnheim and Stanley Cavell.
Coates also provides close analyses of films by directors such as Antonioni, Bergman, Godard, Hitchcock, Hou Hsiao-Hsien, Sirk, Kieslowski, Tarkovsky, Von Trier and Zhang Yimou. Coates' focus is on films that deliberately exploit the rich multiplicity of cultural meanings and associations ascribed to colour, including All That Heaven Allows, Deux ou trois choses que je sais d'elle, The Double Life of Véronique, The Flight of the Red Balloon, Red Desert, Schindler's List, Silent Light, Solaris, The Three Colours Trilogy and The Wizard of Oz.

The cinema as art / Ralph Stephenson & J. R. Debrix
Harmondsworth: Penguin, 1969.
Call No: 63 STE Author: Stephenson, Ralph; Debrix, J. R. CorpAuthor: Penguin Edition: Revised edition, reprint Place: Harmondsworth Publisher: Penguin PubDate: 1969 PhysDes: 270 p.,  p. of plates ; 18 cm Subject: AESTHETICS; ART AND THE CINEMA; ART CINEMA; EDITING; CINEMATOGRAPHY; SOUND; COSTUMES; MAKE-UP; COLORIZATION; LIGHTING Summary: “The cinema as art”, to those brought up on the “movie show and bubblegum” image, must look like a pretentious contradiction in terms. As this book demonstrates, however, the cinema stands for an art form which is almost unique in immediacy and scope. The authors explain, with over 300 examples taken from films of every country and period, the stages by which a director isolates what is mentally and emotionally significant in a situation. The reader is shown, from the inside, how the director may achieve this end by exploiting any or all of the cinematic techniques from script-planning to final editing, from camera movement to costume from sound to soft-focus.

The first colour motion pictures / D B Thomas BSc PhD
London: Her Majesty's Stationery Office, 1983.
Call No: 235.2 THO Author: Thomas, D B CorpAuthor: Science Museum (Great Britain) Source: UK Place: London Publisher: Her Majesty's Stationery Office PubDate: 1983 PhysDes: vii, 39 p. : ill., 20 cm Subject: CAMERAS; CINEMATOGRAPHY; COLORIZATION; COLOUR; COLOUR CORRECTION; COLOUR SYSTEMS; MOTION PICTURES - HISTORY; MOTION PICTURES - GREAT BRITAIN; PRODUCTION; SMITH, GEORGE A; URBAN, CHARLES Summary: "Motion pictures in colour could be seen soon after the birth of cinema - they were hand-painted. The only natural colour process to be a commercial success before 1920 was Kinemacolor, a process invented by an Englishman, George A Smith, and exploited by an American, Charles Urban. This booklet tells the story of how Kinemacolor was developed, given its first public showing in London in 1909 and then shown in many countries in the world. Although it had its limitations, the process was successful for many years before the First World War. Some of the motion picture colour processes which superseded Kinemacolor are described. The work is based on a collection of apparatus, manuscripts, and ephemera given to the Science Museum by Charles Urban." - BOOK BLURB Notes: Reprint. First published 1969.
