Today she is best known as the innovative “mother” of the French New Wave film movement of the 1950s and '60s and for her multimedia art exhibitions. Varying her use of different media, she is a figure who defies easy categorization. In this extensively researched book, Rebecca J. DeRoo demonstrates how Varda draws upon the histories of art, photography, and film to complicate the overt narratives in her works and to advance contemporary cultural politics. Based on interviews with Varda and unparalleled access to Varda's archives, this interdisciplinary study constructs new frameworks for understanding one of the most versatile talents in twentieth and twenty-first century culture.

But there is another way of looking at film, and that is through its close relationship with the visual arts. Art history for Filmmakers shows how images from art can be used by filmmakers to establish period detail, and to demonstrate composition, color theory and lighting. It reveals how the visual culture that gave rise to cinema has itself been shaped and informed by the development of painting, the oldest of the art forms.Featuring stunning images from classic films and iconic artwork, this book will build your appreciation of the history of art, enrich your understanding of the visual language of film, and help to feed that understanding into your own original filmmaking" -- BACK COVER BOOK BLURB Notes: Formerly CIP; Includes bibliographical references and index ISBN: 9781472580658 Donation: Senses of Cinema Contents: Introduction.

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.

Edited by one of the leading British authorities in the field, The Documentary Film Book is an essential guide to current thinking on documentary film.
In a series of fascinating essays, key international experts discuss the theory of documentary, outline current understandings of its history (from pre-Flaherty to the post-Griersonian world of digital 'i-Docs'), survey documentary production (from Africa to Europe, and from the Americas to Asia), consider documentaries by marginalised minority communities, and assess its contribution to other disciplines and arts. Brought together here in one volume, these scholars offer compelling evidence as to why, over the last few decades, documentary has come to the centre of screen studies. -- BOOK BLURB ISBN: 9781844573417 Contents: Acknowledgments -- Notes on Contributors -- Foreword: Why Documentaries Matter -- Introduction: The Filmed Documentary --; PART I: DOCUMENTARY VALUES -- The Question of Evidence, the Power of Rhetoric and Documentary Film: Bill Nichols -- 'I'll Believe It When I Trust the Source': Documentary Images and Visual Evidence: Carl Plantinga -- 'The Performance Documentary': The Performing Film-Maker, the Acting Subject: Stella Bruzzi -- On Truth, Objectivity and Partisanship: The Case of Michael Moore: Douglas Kellner -- CGI and the End of Photography as Evidence: Taylor Downing -- Drawn From Life: The Animated Documentary: Andy Glynne -- Dramadoc?

Subject: CAHIERS DU CINEMA; MOVEMENTS AND STYLES IN FILM HISTORY; NOUVELLE VAGUE; TRUFFAUT, FRANCOIS; BAZIN, ANDRE; GODARD, JEAN-LUC Summary: The French New Wave: Critical Landmarks is a new and expanded edition of a classic anthology of writings by critics and film-makers associated with the Nouvelle Vague. The new edition, published to mark the 50th anniversary of the New Wave, features all the articles from the first edition, including Bazin's seminal 'La Politique des Auteurs' and a brand new translation of Truffaut's 'Une certaine tendance du cinema francais' (A Certain Tendency in French Cinema). In addition, the collection includes articles by and interviews with Bazin, Godard, Chabrol and others that helped to shape contemporary debates about the history, aesthetics and practice of cinema, as well as a case study offering three different perspectives on Godard's A bout de souffle.
The new edition features a preface by Peter Graham alongside his preface to the 1968 edition, and an introduction by Ginette Vincendeau that contextualises the Nouvelle Vague in the light of recent developments in film theory and history and its influence on subsequent French film-making. There is also a new and substantial bibliography of works on the New Wave in English and French, making this an indispensable point of reference for anyone interested in the movement and its long-lasting effects on the theory and practice of cinema.

Source: US/UK Place: New York Publisher: Bloomsbury Academic PubDate: 2016 PhysDes: 266 pages ; 25 cm Series: Global exploitation cinemas Subject: EXPLOITATION FILMS; BLAXPLOITATION FILMS; HORROR FILMS; HISTORY OF CINEMA; HISTORY OF CINEMA. 1960's; HISTORY OF CINEMA. 1970's; HISTORY OF CINEMA. 1980's; EROTIC FILMS; MOVEMENTS AND STYLES IN FILM HISTORY; POPULAR CULTURE AND THE CINEMA; CRITICISM Summary: "The pervasive image of New York's 42nd Street as a hub of sensational thrills, vice and excess, is from where “grindhouse cinema,” the focus of this volume, stemmed. It is, arguably, an image that has remained unchanged in the mind's eye of many exploitation film fans and academics alike. Whether in the pages of fanzines or scholarly works, it is often recounted how, should one have walked down this street between the 1960s and the 1980s, one would have undergone a kaleidoscopic encounter with an array of disparate “exploitation” films from all over the world that were being offered cheaply to urbanites by a swathe of vibrant movie theatres.
The contributors to Grindhouse: Cultural Exchange on 42nd Street, and Beyond consider “grindhouse cinema” from a variety of cultural and methodological positions. Some seek to deconstruct the etymology of “grindhouse” itself, add flesh to the bones of its cadaverous history, or examine the term's contemporary relevance in the context of both media production and consumerism. Others offer new inroads into hitherto unexamined examples of exploitation film history, presenting snapshots of cultural moments that many of us thought we already understood." -- BOOK BACK COVER Notes: Includes bibliographical references and index ISBN: 9781628927498 Contents: -- Table of Contents -- Acknowledgments -- Introduction: 42nd Street, and Beyond -- Austin Fisher and Johnny Walker -- Chapter 1 -- Grinding out the Grindhouse: Exploitation, Myth and Memory / Glenn Ward -- Chapter 2 -- Where Did We Come In?: The Economics of Unruly Audiences, Their Cinemas and Tastes, From Serial Houses to Grind Houses / Phyll Smith -- Chapter 3 -- Temporary Fleapits and Scabs' Alley:The Theatrical Dissemination of Italian Cannibal Films in Melbourne, Australia / Dean Brandum -- Chapter 4 -- Run, Angel, Run: Serial Production and the Biker Movie, 1966-72 / Peter Stanfield -- Chapter 5 -- "The Smashing, Crashing, Pileup of the Century": The Carsploitation Film / Robert J Read -- Chapter 6 -- Cars and Girls (and Burgers and Weed): Branding, Mainstreaming, and Crown International Pictures' SoCal Drive-in Movies / Richard Nowell -- Chapter 7 -- From "Sex Entertainment for the Whole Family" to Mature Pictures: I Jomfruens Tegn and Transnational Erotic Cinema / Kevin Heffernan -- Chapter 8 -- 'Bigger Than A Payphone, Smaller Than A Cadillac': Porn Stardom in Exhausted: John C Holmes The Real Story / Neil Jackson -- Chapter 9 -- From Opera House to Grindhouse (And Back Again): Ozploitation In and Beyond Australia / Alexandra Heller-Nicholas -- Chapter 10 -- Go West, Brother: the Politics of Landscape in the Blaxploitation Western / Austin Fisher -- Chapter 11 -- Red Power, White Movies: Billy Jack, Johnny Firecloud, and the Cultural Politics of the "Indiansploitation" Cycle / David Church -- Chapter 12 -- Sleazy Strip-Joints and Perverse Porn Circuses: The Remediation of Grindhouse in the Porn Productions of Jack the Zipper / Clarissa Smith -- Select Bibliography -- Contributors -- index -- More info

The book moves from broad historical and theoretical context, particularly theories of nation, emergent discourses of "mexicanidad" and the establishment and development of the Mexican industry, towards readings of key film texts and genres. Individual chapters discuss the relationship between Hollywood cinema and Mexican cinema, the stars of the "Golden Age," the role of foreign auteurs in the founding of Mexican cinema, tensions in the industry in the 1960s, and the national and international reception of contemporary films and film-makers. The author then examines the portrayal of Mexican nationhood through critical analysis of film genres including Revolutionary films, machismo and "mexicanidad," the prostitute, and the work of female auteurs.

Provocative essays discuss the work both of established auteur directors such as Howard Hawks and Alfred Hitchcock as well as the filmmaking careers of such experimental moviemakers as William Burroughs and Viking Eggeling, the dadaist pioneer of abstract film. The collection also includes fascinating studies of a number of film classics, such as John Huston's Freud, Jean Renoir's Rules of the Game and Ridley Scott's Blade Runner.".
"Paris Hollywood suggests new approaches to thinking about film and many unexpected connections between film studies and the history of such strangely related activities as espionage, psychoanalysis, dance, architecture, anthropology, Stalinism, love of speed and digital technology. Wollen's book is based on the premise that there are no fixed ways of writing about the cinema but, rather, a plethora of paths leading in very different directions, each contributing to a new understanding of the 20th century's major art form."--BOOK JACKET Notes: Includes bibliographical references and indexes

The rise and fall of british documentary : the story of the film movement founded by John Grierson / Elizabeth Sussex

UK; UNITED KINGDOM; DOCUMENTARIES; DOCUMENTARIES: UNITED KINGDOM; MOVEMENTS AND STYLES IN FILM HISTORY; HISTORY OF CINEMA; CRITICISM; GRIERSON, JOHN; FLAHERTY, ROBERT; NIGHT MAIL (UK, Basil Wright & Harry Watt, 1936) Summary: "The image of British documentary has usually been one of artistic prestige and a certain doctrinaire stuffiness. This book is an attempt to recreate the real human experience behind the myth - utilizing a kind of documentary method, intercutting the author's commentary and interview material. Elizabeth Sussex, who is a film-maker herself, talked with all the important living figures of the documentary movement about its complex conflicts, frustrations, and missed chances. Her account is tempered, critical, and knowledgeable. It not only provides a circumstantial record of the movement, but poses issues that must be confronted in any attempt to use film for social purposes. Some outstanding characters in the story - Cavalcanti and Jennings, for example - are evaluated anew, and aspects of the movement that we have known primarily through Grierson's genius for publicity receive skeptical scrutiny. Skillfully edited into a concise and dramatic chronological story, the interviews say more in their cumulative impact than any plain narrative could. The book puts all previous studies of documentary into a new perspective, and will be required reading for anyone concerned with the subject" -- BOOK JACKET Notes: Reviewed in 'The Rise and Fall of the British Documentary: Grierson and the old boys' by William Guynn (Jump Cut, no. 15, 1977, pp. 28-29) ISBN: 0520028694 Donation: Donated by James Sabine Contents: -- preface -- acknowledgments -- interviewees in order of appearance -- 1 the movement moves in -- 2 the spell of Flaherty -- 3 innovations at the Post office -- 4 Night Mail -- 5 the movement divides -- 6 war and the peak of achievement -- 7 the post war decline -- 8 reflections on past and future -- epilogue -- index -- More info

Often requiring time and effort to fully grasp it and seeming rather old-fashioned, it can be difficult to approach the subject with enthusiasm and appreciate its relevance to modern day.
Understanding Film Theory aims to disassociate theory from these connotations and bring a fresh, contemporary and accessible approach to the discipline. Now comprehensively updated in a second edition, the book’s sixteen chapters - including a new chapter on Adaptations - continue to provide an insight into the main areas of debate. Taking the application of theory as its central theme, the text incorporates a number of innovative features: ‘Reflect and Respond’ sections encourage readers to engage critically with theoretical concepts, while seminal texts are concisely summarised without oversimplifying key points.
Throughout the book the authors illustrate why theory is important and demonstrate how it can be applied in a meaningful way, with relevant case studies drawn from both classic and contemporary cinema including: Once Upon a Time in the West (1968), Run Lola Run (1998), The Hunger Games (2012), Blue is the Warmest Colour (2013) and The Lego Movie (2014). Additional case studies address key genres (the British Gangster film and the musical), film movements (Dogme 95), individual actors (Ryan Gosling, Judi Dench and Amitabh Bachchan) and directors (Alfred Hitchcock and Guillermo del Toro).
Understanding Film Theory is an approachable and extensive introduction to film theory. It is the ideal entry point for any student studying film, using clear definitions and explaining complex ideas succinctly.

By integrating the music of Beethoven, Mahler, and others into their films, directors such as Fassbinder, Kluge, and Syderberg consciously called attention to its cultural significance. Through this music their films could reference and, in some cases, explore an embedded cultural tradition that included German nationalism and the rise of Nazism, especially during a period when German films were gaining international attention for the first time since the 1920s. Classical music conditioned the responses of German audiences in the 1970s and 1980s and was, in turn, reinterpreted in new cinematic contexts. In this pioneering volume, Hillman enriches our understanding of the powerful effects of music in cinema and the aesthetic and dramatic concerns of postwar German filmmakers."
