This compelling study corrects such omissions by detailing the theory and practice of alternative adaptation practices from major avant-garde directors. Avant-Garde films are often relegated to the margins because they challenge our traditional notions of what film form and style can accomplish. Directors who choose to adapt previous material run the risk of severe critical dismay; making films that are highly subjective interpretations or representations of existing texts takes courage and foresight. An avant-garde adaptation provokes spectators by making them re-think what they know about film itself, just as much as the previous source material.Adaptation and the Avant-Garde examines films by Peter Greenaway, Jean-Luc Godard, Guy Maddin, Jan Svankmajer and many others, offering illuminating insights and making us reconsider the nature of adaptation, appropriation, borrowing, and the re-imagining of previous sources. -- extract taken from the back of the book. -- Notes: Formerly CIP. --

The altering eye : contemporary international cinema / Robert Phillip Kolker
Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1983.
Call No: 62 KOL Author: Kolker, Robert Phillip Source: US Place: Oxford Publisher: Oxford University Press PubDate: 1983 PhysDes: 428 p. : ill. ; 21 cm Subject: HISTORY OF CINEMA; CRITICISM; PHILOSOPHY AND THE CINEMA; DE SICA, VITTORIO; GODARD, JEAN-LUC Summary: " Most filmmakers, especially in the United States, have chosen not to upset their audiences. But since World War 2, an alternative cinema has emerged on a significant scale, particularly in Europe and Latin America- a cinema that challenges rather than soothes, that questions assumptions rather than reinforces them. This kind of film - "made in a spirit of resistance, rebellion, and refusal" - is the focus of this important and stimulating study. Investigating many movements and styles, Robert Phillip Kolker illuminates both their diversity and their common threads. He starts with the seminal achievements of the Italian neo-realists (Rossellini, De Sica, Visconti), examining the filmmakers who influenced them and their influence in turn on later filmmakers in Engalnd, Brazil, India and Europe. He looks at the modernist experiments of Resnais and Antonioni and pays special attention to the directors of the French New Wave (Godard, Truffaut, Chabrol, Rohmer, Rivette), who broke down the remaining traditions of cinematic storytelling and invented new ones.
With deftness and clarity, Kolker discusses the New Wave's influence on such older directors as Bresson and Bunuel, as well as on younger ones, such as Ken Russell, Nicolas Roeg, and Jean-Marie Straub. He investigates the New German Cinema of Fassbinder, Wenders, and Herzog, filmmakers who have furthered the effort to make cinema a tool of enquiry and visual invention. He concludes with a look at specific political and psychological elements in contemporary film, particularly in the work of revolutionary Latin American filmmakers, the Hungarian director Miklos Jancso, as well as Godard, Bertolucci, Fassbinder, Losey, and Bunuel." -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Includes index; Bibliography: p. 405-415 ISBN: 0195033027 Contents: -- introduction -- one: the vaildity of image -- two: the substance of form -- three: politics, psychology, and memory -- notes -- bibliography -- index -- URL status: URL: 'http://-'

For the past fifty years, the love/hate affair between the two has triggered vital aesthetic, social and political responses that constantly renew the way we understand our age. This book traces the story from early spatial experiments with film and video technologies to the current widespread use of projected images in museums and galleries. Why has there been a turn to the cinematic in contemporary art? What happens to the moving image when it shifts from the black box to the white cube, when cinema is exhibited? How does this challenge the traditional mediums of film, painting and sculpture? 'Art and the Moving Image' gathers together key texts including new, translated and previously unavailable essays by eminent writers and theorists including Giorgio Agamben, Beatriz Colomina, Serge Daney, Rosalind Krauss, Maurizio Lazzaratto and Peter Wollen. It offers an essential introduction to the complex field of art and the projected image for both students and general readers." -- Publisher's website.

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.

Essays on the essay film / edited by Nora M. Alter; Timothy Corrigan
Chichester, U.K.: Columbia University Press, 2017.
Call No: 632.22 ESS Author: Alter, Nora M.; Corrigan, Timothy Place: New York; Chichester, U.K. Publisher: Columbia University Press PubDate: 2017 PhysDes: ix,372 : illus. ; 23 cm Series: Film and culture series Subject: DOCUMENTARY FILMS; RICHTER, HANS; ASTRUC, ALEXANDRE; MARKER, CHRIS; VERTOV, DZIGA; GODARD, JEAN-LUC; GORIN, JEAN-PIERRE; MULVEY, LAURA; JULIEN, ISAAC Summary: The essay—with its emphasis on the provisional and explorative rather than on definitive statements—has evolved from its literary beginnings and is now found in all mediums, including film. Today, the essay film is, arguably, one of the most widely acclaimed and critically discussed forms of filmmaking around the world, with practitioners such as Chris Marker, Hito Steyerl, Errol Morris, Trinh T. Minh-ha, and Rithy Panh. Characteristics of the essay film include the blending of fact and fiction, the mixing of art- and documentary-film styles, the foregrounding of subjective points of view, a concentration on public life, a tension between acoustic and visual discourses, and a dialogic encounter with audiences.
This anthology of fundamental statements on the essay film offers a range of crucial historical and philosophical perspectives. It provides early critical articulations of the essay film as it evolved through the 1950s and 1960s, key contemporary scholarly essays, and a selection of writings by essay filmmakers. It features texts on the foundations of the essay film by writers such as Hans Richter and André Bazin; contemporary positions by, among others, Phillip Lopate and Michael Renov; and original essays by filmmakers themselves, including Laura Mulvey and Isaac Julien. -- publishers' web site ISBN: 9780231172677 Contents: Introduction, by Nora M.

Godard's own persona - cultural hero, fierce loner, shrewd businessman - projects similarly shifting images. In the modern canon, he is a figure as mysterious as he is indispensible. Now, acclaimed critic Richard Brody offers the fullest picture yet of Godard's life and work, demsytifying the elusive filmmaker through hundreds of interviews with friends, relatives, and collaborators. He vividly depicts Godard's wealthy family, his changeable and often disturbing politics, his tumultuous dealings with fellow filmmakers, and his troubled relations with women. Tracing an arc from the director's early writing, through his popular success with Breathless and Contempt, to the grand vision of his later years, Everything Is Cinema shows decisively that Godard's films have left their mark on all screens, everywhere. -- BOOK BLURB Notes: "NBCC Award.

But how has this modern, technological, mass-circulating medium revealed the face in ways that are also distinct from any other? How has it altered our perception of this quintessential incarnation of the person? The archaic powers of masks and icons, the fashioning of the individual in the humanist portrait, the modernist anxieties of fragmentation and de-figuration—these are among the cultural precedents informing our experience in the movie theatre. Yet the moving, time-based image also offers radical new confrontations with the face: Dreyer's Passion of Joan of Arc, Donen's Funny Face, Hitchcock's The Wrong Man, Bresson's Au hazard, Balthazar, Antonioni's Screen Test, Warhol's filmic portraits of celebrity and anonymity. Such intense encounters, examined in this book, manifest a desire for transparency and plenitude, but—especially in post-classical cinema—also betray a profound ambiguity that haunts the human countenance, confronting interiority as opacity, treading the gap between image and language. The spectacular impact of the cinematic face is uncannily intertwined with a reticence, an ineffability; but is it not for this very reason that—like faces in the world—it still enthralls us? -- publisher's web site ISBN: 9780199863167 Contents: Acknowledgements -- Preface: Face Moving Image -- A Dispositif -- An Ur-Image -- The Face Against the Image -- Itineraries Chapter One: We Had Faces, Then -- Expressivity in the 1920s -- Joan of Arc, Inevitably -- The Face and its Voices -- Glamour/Anti-Glamour Chapter Two: Roland Barthes Looks at the Stars -- Towards “Visages et Figures,” and circa 1953 Excursus on the Face in Language -- Into the Movie Theater -- Ultra-Face Excursus on the Mask -- From Cult to Charm: Funny Face Chapter Three: Face-to-Face (with The Wrong Man) -- What Godard Saw -- What the Clerk Saw Excursus on Anthropometrics -- Not a Mirror, Not a Lamp Chapter Four: Pass/Fail: Screen Test, Apparatus, Subject -- The Antonioni Screen Test Excursus on the Portrait -- Outer and Inner Space, and the Pathos of Time -- Fail Better Chapter Five: In Reticence (Bresson) -- The Epidermal and the Written -- The Image Against the Face -- Not an Open Book, but a Door Ajar -- Postface: The Two-Shot: Inherent More info

It coalesces twentieth-century ideas of film as thought (from Hugo Münsterberg to Gilles Deleuze) into a practical theory of "film-thinking," arguing that film style conveys poetic ideas through a constant dramatic "intent" about the characters, spaces, and events of film. Discussing contemporary filmmakers such as Béla Tarr and the Dardenne brothers, this timely contribution to the study of film and philosophy will provoke debate among audiences and filmmakers alike." - taken from publisher website.

With a career ranging from France's revolutionary New Wave movement in the early 1960s, through a period of drastic political experimentation in the late 1960s and 1970s, to a current introspective period in which he explores issues of spirituality, sexuality, and the aesthetics of sound, image, and montage, Godard's work defies easy categorization. In this study, David Sterritt offers an introductory overview of Godard's work as a filmmaker, critic, and video artist. He then traces Godard's visionary ideas through six of his key films: Breathless, My Life to Live, Weekend, Numero deux, Hail Mary, and Nouvelle Vague. Also included is a concise analysis of his work in video, television, and mixed-media formats. Linking works by Godard to key social and cultural developments, The Films of Jean-Luc Godard explains their importance in modernist and postmodernist art of the last half century.

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.

Many scholars have linked the origins of the discipline to late-1960s developments in the academy such as structuralist theory and student protest. Yet this collection reveals the broader material and institutional forces—both inside and outside of the university—that have long shaped the field. Beginning with the first investigations of cinema in the early twentieth century, this volume provides detailed examinations of the varied social, political, and intellectual milieus in which knowledge of cinema has been generated. The contributors explain how multiple instantiations of film study have had a tremendous influence on the methodologies, curricula, modes of publication, and professional organizations that now constitute the university-based discipline. Extending the historical insights into the present, contributors also consider the directions film study might take in changing technological and cultural environments. -- Publisher description Notes: Includes bibliographical references and index ISBN: 9780822342892 Contents: The Academy and Motion Pictures / Lee Grieveson, Haidee Wasson

It is the first book to cover the whole of Godard's career, from the early successes of the French New Wave, through the political works of the late 1960s and 1970s and the difficult films of the 1980s, to the recent triumphs of Histoire(s) du cinema and Eloge de l'amour. Drawing on a wide range of literary, filmic and philosophical texts, the book places Godard's work within its intellectual context in France, examining how developments in French culture and thought since 1950 have been mirrored in - and sometimes anticipated by - Godard's films. At the same time, numerous sequences from Godard's films are singled out for close analysis in order to demonstrate how the director's radical approaches to narrative, editing, sound and shot composition have made the cinema into an analytical tool in its own right - a machine for thinking. The book will be useful to all students of Godard's films, and of interest to scholars of modern and contemporary French cinema, culture and thought.

Jean-Luc Godard : interviews / edited by David Sterritt

Call No: 81GOD JEA Author: Sterritt, David (ed.) Source: US Place: Jackson Publisher: University of Mississippi PubDate: c1998 PhysDes: xxxiii, 203 p. : ill. ; 24 cm Series: Conversations with filmmakers series Subject: NOUVELLE VAGUE; GODARD, JEAN-LUC; VIVRE SAVIE (FR, Jean-Luc Godard, 1962) Summary: " "I am trying to change the world," filmmaker Jean-luc Godard told critic Gene Youngblood some thirty years ago. He has pursued his revolution in works ranging from the explosive Breathless to the eloquent Contempt to the controversial Hail Mary and the postmodern Histoire(s) du cinema, shaking up conventional formulas with boldly innovative approaches to every aspect of cinema and video - including film criticism via provocative essays in Cahiers du Cinema and interviews dating to the early years of his career.
This book presents a varied selection of his conversations with critics, scholars, and journalists, spanning the 1960s to the 1990s and illuminating key facets of his life, work and ideas. Topics include the seductiveness of cinema ("Films are the only things by which to look inside of people, and that's why people are so fond of movies and why they'll never die"); film as a blend of truth and beauty (" I mix images and sounds like a scientist, I hope. The mystery of the scientific is the same as the mystery of the artist. So is the misey"); and the personal realities of aging ("Maybe it's that when you get old, in one way you feel younger and younger but still being old - young oldness, if I may say so, which is very...comforting"). As challenging and evocative as they are quirky and unpredictable, all these interviews cast light on Godard's lifelong position as a proudly unclassifiable thinker who feels, as he said in 1980, that "a language is obviously made to cross borders.

Originally released as a videographic experiment in film history, Jean-Luc Godard's Histoire(s) du cinéma has been widely hailed as a landmark in how we think about and narrate cinema history, and in how history is taught through cinema. In this stunningly illustrated volume, Michael Witt explores Godard’s landmark work as both a specimen of an artist's vision and a philosophical statement on the history of film. Witt contextualizes Godard's theories and approaches to historiography and provides a guide to the wide-ranging cinematic, aesthetic, and cultural forces that shaped Godard's groundbreaking ideas on the history of cinema. -- BOOK BLURB ISBN: 9780253007285 Contents: Introduction: Godard's theorem -- Histoire(s) du cine´ma: a history -- The prior and parallel work -- Models and guides -- The rise and fall of the cinematograph -- Cinema, nationhood, and the new wave -- Making images in the age of spectacle -- The metamorphoses AFIRC Location: Stacks More info
Jerzy Skolimowski : the cinema of a nonconformist / Ewa Mazierska

Call No: 81SKO MAZ Author: Mazierska, Ewa Place: New York Publisher: Berghahn Books PubDate: 2010 PhysDes: viii, 212 p. : ill. ; 24 cm Subject: POLAND; SKOLIMOWSKI, JERZY; POLANSKI, ROMAN; GODARD, JEAN-LUC Summary: Jerzy Skolimowski is one of the most original Polish directors and one of only a handful who has gained genuine recognition abroad. This is the first monograph, written in English, to be devoted to his cinema. It covers Skolimowski's career from his early successes in Poland, such as Identification Marks: None and Barrier, through his migr films, Deep End, Moonlighting and The Lightship, to his return to Poland where, in 2008, he made the internationally acclaimed Four Nights with Anna.
Ewa Mazierska addresses the main features of Skolimowski's films, such as their affinity to autobiographism and surrealism, while discussing their characters, narratives, visual style, soundtracks, and the uses of literature. She draws on a wide range of cinematic and literary texts, situating Skolimowski's work within the context of Polish and world cinema, and drawing parallels between his work and that of two directors, with whom he tends to be compared, Roman Polanski and Jean-Luc Godard Notes: "Berghahn on film"--Cover.

In Making Worlds, Claudia Breger argues that contemporary European cinema provides ways of thinking about and feeling collectivity that can challenge these political trends.
Breger offers nuanced readings of major contemporary films such as Michael Haneke’s The White Ribbon, Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Biutiful, Fatih Akin’s The Edge of Heaven, Asghar Farhadi’s A Separation, and Aki Kaurismäki’s refugee trilogy, as well as works by Jean-Luc Godard and Rainer Werner Fassbinder. Through a new model of cinematic worldmaking, Breger examines the ways in which these works produce unexpected and destabilizing affects that invite viewers to imagine new connections among individuals or groups. These films and their depictions of refugees, immigrants, and communities do not simply counter dominant political imaginaries of hate and fear with calls for empathy or solidarity. Instead, they produce layered sensibilities that offer the potential for greater openness to others’ present, past, and future claims. Drawing on the work of Latour, Deleuze, and Rancière, Breger engages questions of genre and realism along with the legacies of cinematic modernism. Offering a rich account of contemporary film, Making Worlds theorizes the cinematic creation of imaginative spaces in order to find new ways of responding to political hatred -- publisher's website Notes: Includes bibliographical references (page 293-324) and index.

It presents a wide spectrum of case studies, covering both film and digital technology, with examples from throughout cinematic history and around the world, including Soviet Russia, Palestine, South America, and France. Discussions range from the classic Marxist cinema of Aleksandr Medvedkin, Chris Marker, and Jean-Luc Godard, to recent media such as 5 Broken Cameras (2010), the phenomena of video-blogging, and bicycle activism films. -- publisher's web site ISBN: 9781782386421 Contents: CONTENTS

The critics 'championed the cause of these movies and incited the cultural guardians of the day by attacking a rigorously policed canon of tasteful, rareified, and ossified art objects.
Against the legitimate and in the defense of the illegitimate, in an insolent and unruly manner, these critics agitated for the recognition of lurid sensational crime stories. War pictures, fast-paced Westerns, thillers, and gangster melodramas were claimed as examples of the true, the real, and the authentic in contemporary culture - the foundation upon which modern film studies sits.' - taken from Back Cover ISBN: 9780813550626 Contents: Introduction : yours till the boys come home -- Position papers : in defense of pulp movies -- A genealogy of pulp : Black mask to Mickey Spillane -- A world of small insanities : the critical reception of Kiss me deadly -- American primitive : Samuel Fuller's pulp politics -- Authenticating pulp : Jim Thompson adaptations and neo-noir -- Conclusion : hiding out in cinemas More info

His witty, incisive criticism later worked exacting language into an exploration of the feelings and strategies that went into low-budget and radical films as diverse as Michael Snow's Wavelength, Werner Herzog's Fata Morgana, and Shantal Akerman's Jeanne Dielman. Expanded with an in-depth interview and seven essays written in collaboration with his wife, artist Patricia Patterson, Negative Space gathers Farber's most influential writings, making this an indispensable collection for all lovers of film Notes: "First Da Capo Press edition"--T.p. verso; Includes index ISBN: 0306808293 (pbk. : alk. paper) LON: 13667387 More info

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 personal camera : subjective cinema and the essay film / Rascaroli, Laura
United States: Wallflower Press, .
Call No: 761 RAS Author: Rascaroli, Laura Source: Adrian Miles Place: United States Publisher: Wallflower Press PubDate:  PhysDes: viii, 226 p. : ill. ; 24 cm Subject: AVANT-GARDE FILMS; FAROCKI, HARUN; MARKER, CHRIS; GODARD, JEAN-LUC; SOKUROV, ALEKSANDR; PASOLINI, PIER PAOLO Summary: "The Personal Camera is an exploration of an elusive but increasingly compelling field: essayistic cinema. The essay film, together with its cognate forms - the diary, the travelogue, the notebook and the self-portrait - is cinema in the first person. It is a cinema of thought, of investigation and self-reflection in which the filmmaker, instead of withdrawing behind the camera, comes out into the open to say 'I', to take responsibility, and to address and engage with the spectator within a shared space of embodied subjectivity. Authorial, experimental and radical, essayistic cinema belongs within the lineage of avantgarde and political filmmaking, and responds above all to the need we feel today for more contingent, autobiographical, private forms of expression. By engaging with directors such as Jean-Luc Godard, Chris Marker, Harun Farocki, Pier Paolo Pasolini, Aleksandr Sokurov, Michelangelo Antonioni, Derek Jarman, Federico Fellini, Jonas Mekas and Agnes Varda, this book --
provides novel answers to some of the seminal questions of cinema: on the nature of the cinematographic experience, on authorship and spectatorship, on the filmic commitment to truth and on the state of subjectivity today." --Book Jacket. Notes: Formerly CIP.

Utopian Television examines works of the great filmmakers Roberto Rossellini, Peter Watkins, and Jean-Luc Godard, all of whom looked to television as a promising new medium even while remaining critical of its existing practices.
Utopian Television illustrates how each director imagined television’s improved or “utopian” version by drawing on elements that had come to characterize it by the early 1960s. Taking advantage of the public service model of Western European broadcasting, each used television to realize works that would never have been viable in the commercial cinema. All three directors likewise seized on television’s supposed affinity for information and its status as a “useful” medium, but attempted to join this utility with aesthetic experimentation, suggesting new ways to conceive of the relationship between aesthetics and information.
As beautifully written as it is theoretically rigorous, Utopian Television turns to the writing of Fredric Jameson and Ernst Bloch in treating the three directors’ television experiments as enactments of “utopia as method.” In doing so it reveals the extent to which the medium inspired and shaped hopes not only of a better future but of better moving image art as well. - publisher's web site ISBN: 9781517900397 Contents: Contents -- Introduction.
