POLAND; NOSTALGIA IN FILMS; POLAND; WAJDA, ANDRZEJ Summary: "The work of Andrzej Wajda, one of the world's most important filmmakers, shows remarkable cohesion in spite of the wide ranging scope of his films, as this study of his complete output of feature films shows. Not only do his films address crucial historical, social and political issues; the complexity of his work is reinforced by the incorporation of the elements of major film and art movements such as Socialist Realism, Italian Neorealism, the documentary tradition, French New Wave, Surrealism, the grotesque, the theatre of the absurd, propaganda film, Polish Romantic tradition and many other artistic phenomena (jazz, Polish student subculture). It is the reworking of all these different elements by Wajda, as the author shows, which give his films their unique visual and aural qualities."--BOOK JACKET.

(US, Gordon Douglas, 1954); KISS ME DEADLY (US, Robert Aldrich, 1955); REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE (US, Nicholas Ray, 1955) Summary: " An Army of Phantoms- a major new work of film history and cultural criticism from J. Hoberman, one of the foremost film critics writing today addresses the dynamic synergy of American politics and American popular culture during the Cold War's first decade.
Heralded by a mushroom cloud over Hiroshima, the years between 1946 and 1956 brought an explosion of affluence and anxiety. Along with U.S. dominance over Europe and a new war in Asia came the birth of the civil rights movement and the first stirrings of a new youth culture. The period saw the movie industry purged of its political left at the same time as the ideological action hero John Wayne reached the peak of his career.
Analyzing Hollywood's cavalry Westerns, apocalyptic sci-fi flicks, and biblical spectaculars, along with media events, congressional hearings and political campaigns, and drawing on FBI files and studio records, Hoberman has orchestrated a colorful, sometimes surreal pageant wherein Cecil B. DeMille rubs shoulders with Douglas MacArthur, atomic tests are shown on live TV, God talks on the radio, and Joe McCarthy is bracketed with Marilyn Monroe.
Essential reading for film and history buffs, An Army of Phantoms expands on the analysis of the 1960's found in Hoberman's critically acclaimed The Dream Life and offers a lively and astute history of film that is also, to paraphrase Jean-Luc Godard, about the film of history." --Book Jacket.

Hall, 1939); ANTS IN HIS PANTS (AT, William Freshman, 1939) Summary: Comedy has been a perpetual part of Australian film, in which humour reflects Australia's adaptation in times of crisis, social change and technological advances. This was never more so than in the 1930s, when Australia produced more comedy feature films than in any other decade before 1970. These films of the 1930s embraced the new technology of sound, made local vaudeville performers into movie stars, offered escape from the Depression and revealed a diverse and international Australia. In these films, Australia moved further from Empire and the bush, forged the Digger legend, responded to cultural diversity and viewed itself as a modern, urban nation. Influenced by Hollywood, Australian comedies of the 1930s adapted international styles to local points of view. Based on research at the National Film and Sound Archive, Lesley Speed's book provides new insight into Australian comedy films of the 1930s and the extraordinary period of social change in which they were produced.

Through philosophical and historical contextualization, he reveals the logic of what appears on the screen, a logic that shows how these films both represent and distort the historical record in order to articulate a truth that challenges conventional history as a discipline. Counterdisciplinary in its method, this exciting work asserts that no movie can ever be reduced to the absolutely authentic or the absolutely inauthentic." -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Formerly CIP; Includes bibliographical references and index ISBN: 9780230116511 Contents: -- acknowledgments -- Introduction: truth, history, and counterdisciplinary practices in film studies -- 1: Terrible beauties: messianic time and the image of social redemption in James Cameron's Titanic. -- 2: Infinite history: Martin Scorsese's Gangs of New York and the production of the inexistent -- 3: "No dreaming, no story, nothing": Baz Luhrmann's Australia, the cinematic common, and postcolonial discourse-- Conclusion: the glorious truth about inglorious history in Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious basterds -- works cited -- index -- More info
The birth of the movies / D.J. Wenden

Call No: 70"0192" WEN Author: Wenden, D.J. Source: UK Place: London Publisher: MacDonald & Janes PubDate: 1975 PhysDes: 192 p. : ill., facsims., ports. ; 24 cm Subject: HISTORY AND THE CINEMA. USA; HISTORY OF CINEMA; HISTORY OF CINEMA. 1920's Summary: "The birth of the movies is a fresh and unusual exploration into the early days of world cinema by a professional historian. It opens up a whole new range of insights by considering the silent film in its general social context rather than as an isolated art form in its own right. The book sets out the stages by which the cinema developed from its origins as a music hall novelty at the turn of the century into an individual means of entertainment and thence- at the end of the 1920s- into big business. This transition was reflected in the replacement of converted back rooms by cheap nickelodeans and then by giant picture palaces, when customers were called patrons and full symphony orchestras played in the pit. The California movie rush of the 1920s is compared to the gold rush of 1849; the dominant Hollywood star system and values are discussed from a social and economic viewpoint - trade is shown to follow the movie; early attempts at censorship are described, and the crude propoganda of the patriotic war films of the Firts World War is set alongside the more sophisticated political methods of Eisenstein (who believed that the film was 'as terrible a weapon as the hand grenade') and of the agit-trains that rolled across post-rolled Russia. Nor are the personalities (Mary Pickford, Chaplin, Keaton, D.W Griffith, etc.) or the aesthetics of the early cinema ignored. The book ends with the coming of the talkies, which were to revolutionize the film industry. Chaplin feared that talking would destroy the illusion of cinema; certainly it put an end to the eolquent silence of a very special and well-developed art." -- BOOK JACKET Notes: Includes index.; Bibliography: p. -188.

Eisenstein, 1925); REALISM ON TV; REALITY "SHOWS"; REALITY TV; RACIAL PROBLEMS ON TV; RACIAL PROBLEMS AND TV; TRUTH IN FILMS; VIOLENCE ON TV; WAR AND THE CINEMA; GULF WAR ON TV; ETHICS AND TV Summary: "Blurred Boundaries explores decisive moments where the traditional boundaries of fiction/non-fiction and truth/falsehood blur. Nichols argues that the history of social representation in film, television, and video requires an understanding of the fate of both contemporary and older work. Traditionally, film history and cultural studies sought to place films in a historical context. Nichols proposes a new goal: to examine how specific works, old and new, promote or suppress a sense of historical consciousness. Examining work from Eisenstein's Strike to the Rodney King videotape, Nichols interrelates issues of formal structure, viewer response, and historical consciousness. Simultaneously, Blurred Boundaries radically alters the interpretative frameworks offered by neoformalism and psychoanalysis: Comprehension itself becomes a social act of transformative understanding rather than an abstract mental process, while the use of psychoanalytic terms like desire, lack, or paranoia to make social points metaphorically yields to vocabulary designed expressly for historical interpretation - such as project, intentionality, and the social imaginary. An important departure from prevailing trends in many fields, Blurred Boundaries offers new directions for the study of visual culture." -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Includes bibliographical references (p. 149-182) and index ISBN: 0253340640 (alk. paper); 0253209005 (paper : alk. paper) LON: 10767942 More info

But is truth or reality readily available, easily acquired, or undisputed? Or do documentaries convey illusions of reality? What aesthetic means are used to build these illusions?
Crafting truth illuminates the way these films tell their stories; how they use the camera, editing, sound, and performance; what rhetorical devices they employ; and what the theoretical, practical, and ethical implications of those choices are. Complex documentary concepts are presented through easily accessible language, images, and a discussion of a wide range of films and videos to encourage new ways of thinking about and seeing nonfiction cinema.

Hoberman delivers a brilliant and witty look at the decade when politics and pop culture became one. This was the era of the Missile Gap and the Space Race, the Black and Sexual Revolutions, the Vietnam War and Watergate - as well as the tele-saturation of the American market and the advent of Pop art. In "elegant, epigrammatic prose" (A.O Scott), Hoberman moves from the political histories of movies to the theater of wars, national political campaigns, and pop-culture events. With entertaining reinterpretations of key Hollywood movies such as Bonnie and Clyde, The Wild Bunch, and Shampoo, and meditations on personages ranging from John Wayne and Patty Hearst to Jane Fonda, Ronald Reagan, and Che Guevara. Hoberman reconstructs the hidden poltical history of 1960s cinema and the spectacular formation of America's mass-mediated politics" -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Originally published: 2003 ISBN: 1565849787 Contents: -- acknowledgments -- introduction: "suddenly...It's 1960!" -- I.

AUSTRALIA; IMMIGRATION IN FILMS AND TELEVISION; MULTICULTURALISM AND THE CINEMA. AUSTRALIA; MIGRATION; HISTORY AND THE CINEMA. AUSTRALIA; MANGIAMELE, GIORGIO; CONTRATTO, IL (AT, Giorgio Mangiamele, 1953) Summary: "Giorgio Mangiamele is without doubt one of the most interesting and artistically gifted filmmakers in contemporary Australian cinema, even though his ideas and talent were often hampered in a technical sense by material and financial circumstances; he is absolutely crucial as representative of the post-war Italian migration experience in Australia. His oeuvre has received considerable critical attention recently but a serious, organic, critical analysis has been hampered by misconceptions about his marginal position with respect to mainstream production and the typcasting of the author as a "migrant" cinematographer. This study has sought to bridge the prejudical divide between the diasporic context and the artistic value, talent and intentions of the filmmaker. Underpinning this argument with Deleuze and Guattari's theoretical framework of "minor" literatures, it is suggest that Mangiamele's diasporic cinematic production did have an influence on mainstream cinema and society, in the sense that "minor no longer designates specific literatures but the revolutionary conditions for every literature within the heart of what is called great (or established) literature" (Kafka, 18). In order to elucidate Mangiamele's acuity, and cinematographic talent and human observational skills, a socio-historical and cultural framing for his oeuvre is provided confirming the author's crucial importance for the post-war period, his highly individual style and work imbued with ethical and moral principles as well as compassion and humanistic concerns." -- BOOK JACKET Notes: Includes bibliographical references ISBN: 9781921421631 Contents: -- main abbreviations -- introduction -- 1. migrant bricoleur or influental pioneer?

Mangiamele, cinematographer of enduring perceptions of southern Italian migrant backwardness -- 5. constructing a filmic discourse on Italian canonical intertextual references -- 6. a 'nosographic' reading of Mangiamele's ambivalent emotional and psychological relationship with host society, depicting states and feelings of dislocation and banishment -- 7. observing and depicting human behaviour to restore dignity in society: the social mise e scene and social performance in Mangiamele's early films -- conclusion -- bibliography -- filmography -- appendix -- More info

A History of Pain : trauma in modern Chinese literature / Michael Berry
New York: Columbia University Press, c2008.
Call No: 409.5 (51) BER Author: Berry, Michael Source: US Place: New York Publisher: Columbia University Press PubDate: c2008 PhysDes: x, 420 p. : ill. ; 25 cm Series: Global Chinese culture Subject: CHINA; VIOLENCE IN FILMS. CHINA; HISTORY AND THE CINEMA. CHINA Summary: "The portrayal of historical atrocity in fiction, film, and popular culture can reveal much about the function of individual memory and the shifting status of national identity.In the context of Chinese culture, films such as Hou Hsiaso-hsien's City of Sadness and Lou Ye's Summer Palace and novels such as Ye Zhaoyan's Nanjing 1937: A Love Story and Wang Xiaobo's The Golden Age collectively reimagine past horrors and give risen to new historical narratives.
Michael Berry takes an innovative look at the representation of six specific traumas in modern Chinese history: the Musha Incident (1930), the Rape of Nanjing (1937-38); the February 28th Incident (1947); the Cultural Revolution (1966-76), Tiananmen Square (1989); and the Handover of Hong Kong (1997). He identifies two primary modes of restaging historical violence: centripetal trauma, or violence inflicted from the outside that inspires a reeexamination of the Chinese nation, and centrifugal trauma, which, originating from within, inspires traumatic narratives that are projected out onto a transnational vision of global dreams and, sometimes, nightmares. These modes allow Berry to connect portrayals of mass violence to ideas of modernity and the nation. He also illuminates the relationship between historical atrocity on a national scale and the pain experienced by the individual; the funtion of film and literature as historical testimony; the intersection between politics and art, history and memory, and the particular advantages of modern media, which have found new means of narrating the burden of historical violence.

The twenties saw the birth of celebrity, still so influential even today. With the influence of Freud and the unconscious came film noir, anticipated by dark European classics like La Bete Humaine; Hollywood in the fifties turned ideological fears into lurid sci-fi and body-snatching horror; with the social change of the sixties came refracted ways of seeing, from Alfie to theStargate sequence in 2001: A Space Odyssey or a compelling seventies nightmares like Carrie. Moving towards our own century, Francine Stock considers how film reflects back on itself, bending time and technology to look to the future. More than a century on from those earliest awe-inspiring images, we are still in thrall to the power of film. In this fascinating, entertaining and illuminating book Francine Stock shows how film both reflects and remakes our world. ISBN: 9781845951993 More info

PubDate: 2005 PhysDes: 330 p. ; 25 cm Subject: McGOWAN, JOHN PATERSON; HISTORY AND THE CINEMA. AUSTRALIA; HISTORY OF CINEMA. SILENT PERIOD; ACTORS. AUSTRALIA Summary: J.P. McGowan (1880-1952) was one of Hollywood’s most prolific pioneers: actor, director, screenwriter, producer and industrial advocate for the motion picture industry. Known as the “Railroad Man” for his specialization in action movies involving railroads, he made common the image of the terrified beauty tied to a track – his first wife was Helen Holmes, of his iconic silent series The Hazards of Helen. This work, the first biography of the Australian-born adventurer, covers a screen career spanning 30 years and over 600 productions from the dawn of the silent era. It chronicles his entire life and places him within the context of the times in which he lived and worked. Previously unknown details are unearthed on his family background and early life, as well as his participation in the Boer War and his move to the United States. The work concludes with a comprehensive filmography of McGowan’s work. [Taken from back cover]. ISBN: 0786419946 More info

Since the early days of Australian film production, movies on Kelly were appearing at regular intervals, and certainly, they are a significant addition to cinema studies and cultural history. Yet, beyond the movies, this thesis discusses Kelly's nineteenth century cultural industry, which played a significant role in commodifying Ned as an important figure of popular entertainment. Indeed, the performance customs and social practices established during Kelly's historic Outbreak of 1878-1880 were taken into the moving pictures in the twentieth century. Kelly's representation though has not been a fixed artefact, and by examining his twentieth and twenty-first century cinema representation, this thesis explores how the origins of his popular image have continued in popular culture. With this thesis adding to the growing field of research on celluloid bandits, it demonstrates the importance of understanding how the Kelly films shift beyond the normal parameters of cinema studies and delve into broader areas of cultural history. As it argues, the Kelly movies are significantly influenced by popular history as well as Kelly's tradition of visual imagery, folk songs and literature.

SILENT PERIOD Summary: " Sanctuary Cinema provides the first history of the origins of the Christian film industry. Focusing on the early days of film during the silent era, it traces the ways in which the Church came to adopt film making as a way of conveying the Christian message to adherents. Surprisingly, rather than separating themselves from Hollywood or the American entertainment culture, early Christian film makers embraced Hollywood cinematic techniques and often populated their films with attractive actors and actresses. But they communicated their sectarian message effectively to believers, and helped to shape subsequent understandings of the Gospel message, which had historically been almost exclusively verbal, not communicated through visual media. While radio eclipsed the motion picture as the Christian communication media of choice by then1920s, the early film makers had laid the foundations for the current re-emergence of Christian film and entertainment, from Veggie Tales to The Passion of the Christ.
