Part guidebook and part manifesto, the book takes a fresh look at what it's like to create work in a world that has become increasingly fragmentary. Through casual and direct discussions Broken Screen offers a detailed navigation through the ideas behind the important yet under-documented visual language of nonlinear narratives, split screens, and fragmentary visual planes that define the most progressive moving images today.

The essay film : dialogue; politics; utopia / edited by Elizabeth A. Papazian and Caroline Eades
New York; Chichester, UK: Wallflower Press, 2016.
Call No: 632.22 ESS Author: Papazian, Elizabeth A; Eades, Caroline Edition: 2016 Place: New York; Chichester, UK Publisher: Wallflower Press PubDate: 2016 PhysDes: xi,315 p. : illustrated ; 23 cm Subject: DOCUMENTARY FILMS; EXPERIMENTAL FILMS; CELOVEK S KINOAPPARATOM (UR, Dziga Vertov, 1929); TREE OF LIFE, THE (US, Terrence Malick, 2011); VERTOV, DZIGA; MARKER, CHRIS; Pasolini, Pier Paolo; AKERMAN, CHANTAL; GODARD, JEAN-LUC; MORETTI, NANNI; DENIS, CLAIRE; MALICK, TERRENCE Summary: With its increasing presence in a continuously evolving media environment, the essay film as a visual form raises new questions about the construction of the subject, its relationship to the world, and the aesthetic possibilities of cinema. In this volume, authors specializing in various national cinemas (Cuban, French, German, Israeli, Italian, Lebanese, Polish, Russian, American) and critical approaches (historical, aesthetic, postcolonial, feminist, philosophical) explore the essay film and its consequences for the theory of cinema while building on and challenging existing theories. Taking as a guiding principle the essay form's dialogic, fluid nature, the volume examines the potential of the essayistic to question, investigate, and reflect on all forms of cinema—fiction film, popular cinema, and documentary, video installation, and digital essay.
A wide range of filmmakers are covered, from Dziga Vertov (Man with a Movie Camera, 1928), Chris Marker (Description of a Struggle, 1960), Nicolás Guillén Landrián (Coffea Arábiga, 1968), Pier Paolo Pasolini (Notes for an African Oresteia, 1969), Chantal Akerman (News from Home, 1976) and Jean-Luc Godard (Notre musique, 2004) to Nanni Moretti (Palombella Rossa, 1989), Mohammed Soueid (Civil War, 2002), Claire Denis (L'Intrus, 2004) and Terrence Malick (The Tree of Life, 2011), among others. The volume argues that the essayistic in film—as process, as experience, as experiment—opens the road to key issues faced by the individual in relation to the collective, but can also lead to its own subversion, as a form of dialectical thought that gravitates towards crisis. -- publisher's web site ISBN: 9780231176958 Contents: Acknowledgments -- Notes on Contributors -- Introduction: Dialogue, Politics, Utopia, by Elizabeth A.

Looking at individual films within the context of feminist film as a genre, Ramanathan examines film from diverse cultural traditions, while paying close attention to what might be regarded as feminist in different cultural contexts. The films chosen expand our ideas of feminism covering as they do film from Africa, Latin America, Europe, Asia and the US. Full-length interpretations of twenty-four films, both older and contemporary, including Vagabond, India Song, Bhaji on the Beach, Chocolat, and Daughters of the Dust lay out a complete and powerful framework for reading women's film. - publisher's web site ISBN: 9781904764694 More info

Her films, including 'Chocolat', 'Beau travail' and 'White Material' explore connections between national experience and individual circumstance, visualising the complications of such dualities. Following a foreword by Wim Wenders, international contributors explore the themes she addresses in her films, such as kinship and landscape, neo-colonialism and New French Extremity. Original interviews with an editor, actor and two composers familiar with Denis's working style and with Denis herself, also reveal fresh facets of this intrepid filmmaker." - BOOK BLURB Notes: Includes list of illustrations, bibliographic references and index ISBN: 9781848859548 Contents: --List of illustrations -- Notes on contributors -- Preface -- Foreword: 'Klarchen'

How, then, to translate the experience of film - which, as Egoyan says, makes us "feel outside and inside at the same time"? Taking subtitles as their point of departure, the thirty-six contributors to this unique collection consider translation, foreigness and otherness in film culture. Their discussions range from the mechanics and aesthetics of subtitles to the xenophobic reaction to translation, to subtitles as a metaphor for the distance and intimacy of film.
