Global art cinema : new theories and histories / edited by Rosalind Galt and Karl Schoonover

Call No: 62(04) GLO Author: Galt, Rosalind (ed); Schoonover, Karl (ed) Source: US Place: New York Publisher: Oxford University Press PubDate: c2010 PhysDes: xxiv, 384 p. : ill. ; 26 cm Subject: AESTHETICS; INDEPENDENT FILMMAKERS; INDEPENDENT FILMS; ART CINEMA Summary: " 'Art Cinema' has for more than fifty years defined how audiences and critics imagine film outside Hollywood, but surprisingly little scholarly attention has been paid to the concept since the 1970s. And yet in the last thirty years art cinema has flourished worldwide. The emergence of East Asian and Latin American new waves, the reinvigoration of European film, the success of Iranian directors, and the rise of the film festival have transformed the landscape of world cinema. This book brings into focus art cinema's core internationalism, demonstrating its centrality to uunderstanding film as a global phenomenon. This collection reassesses the field of art cinema in light of recent scholarship on world film cultures. In adddition to analysis of key regions and films, the essays cover topics including theories of the film image; industrial, aesthetic, and political histories; and art film's intersections with debates on genre, sexuality, new media forms, and postcolonial cultures. Global Art Cinema brings together a diverse group of scholars in a timely conversation that reaffirms the category of art cinema as relevant, provocative, and, in fact, fundamental to contemporary film studies." -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Includes bibliographical references and index ISBN: 9780195385632 Contents: Introduction : the impurity of art cinema / Rosalind Galt, Karl Schoonover -- Beyond Europe : on parametric transcendence / Mark Betz -- The fantastic trajectory of pink art cinema from Stalin to Bush / Sharon Hayashi -- Toward an inclusive, exclusive approach to art cinema / David Andrews -- Unthinking heterocentrism : bisexual representability in art cinema / Maria San Filippo -- Interactive art cinema : between "old" and "new" media with Un chien Andalou and eXistenZ / Adam Lowenstein -- Art/cinema and cosmopolitanism today / Brian Price -- Between auditorium and gallery : perception in Apichatpong Weerasethakul's films and installations / Jihoon Kim -- Pasolini's exquisite flowers : the "cinema of poetry" as a theory of art cinema / John David Rhodes -- From index to figure in the European art film : the case of The conformist / Angelo Restivo -- Surrealism in art and film : face and time / Angela Dalle Vacche -- The volcano and the barren hill : Gabriel Figueroa and the space of art cinema / Patrick Keating -- The essay film as a cinema of ideas / Timothy Corrigan -- The cloud-capped star : Ritwik Ghatak on the horizon of global art cinema / Manishita Dass -- Notes on art cinema and the emergence of sub-Saharan film / Philip Rosen -- Disentangling the international festival circuit : genre and Iranian cinema / Azadeh Farahmand -- European art cinema, affect, and postcolonialism : Herzog, Denis, and the Dardenne brothers / E.

Subject: FILMMAKING; INDEPENDENT FILMMAKERS; INDEPENDENT FILMS; INDEPENDENT PRODUCTION; INDEPENDENT DIRECTORS; DIRECTORS; PRODUCERS; CRITICISM; EUROPEAN CINEMA; BRITISH CINEMA; UNITED KINGDOM; AUSTRALIA; PERU; GREECE; TURKEY; IRAQ; CHINA; AFRICA; MALAYSIA; CANADA; USA Summary: "Independent Filmmaking around the Globe calls attention to the significant changes taking place in independent cinema today, as new production and distribution technology and shifting social dynamics make it easier for independent filmmakers to produce films outside both the mainstream global film industry and their own national film systems. Identifying and analyzing the many complex forces that shape the production and distribution of feature films, the authors detail how independent filmmakers create work that reflects independent voices and challenges political, economic, and cultural constraints.
With chapters on the under-explored cinemas of Greece, Turkey, Iraq, China, Malaysia, Peru, and West Africa, as well as traditional production centres such as the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia, Independent Filmmaking around the Globe explores how contemporary independent filmmaking increasingly defines the global cinema of our time." -- TAKEN FROM FIRST PAGE OF BOOK Notes: Includes bibliographical references and filmography ISBN: 9781442626836 Donation: Senses of Cinema Contents: -- foreword: producing independently in global industry / David Hamilton -- ackowledgments -- 1.The Meaning of Independence: Concepts, Contexts, and Interpretations / Mary P.
