Call No: 403 CIN Author: Charney, Leo; Schwartz, Vanessa R. Source: US Place: Berkeley, California Publisher: University of California Press PubDate: 1995 PhysDes: vii, 409 pages : illustrations ; 24 cm Subject: BENJAMIN, WALTER; KRACAUER, SIEGFRIED; LUMIERE, AUGUSTE & LOUIS; PATHE Summary: "Casting aside the traditional conception of film as an outgrowth of photography, theater, and the novel, the essays in this volume reasses the relationship between the emergence of film and the broader culture of modernity. The cultural developments and historical transformations that became known as "modernity" were themselves cinematic, according to these leading scholars in film and cultural studies.They link the popularity of cinema in the later nineteenth century to emerging cultural phenomena such as window shopping, mail-order catalogs, and wax museums and show how film was uniquely prepared to reflect the new ways of seeing, thinking, and experiencing." -- taken from back cover Notes: Includes bibliographical references and index.

It is both a history film theory and an introduction to the work of the most important and influential writers on the subject - Munsterberg, Arnheim, Eisenstein, Balazs, Kracauer, Bazin, Mitry and Metz. Andrew sets these major theorists one against the other forcing them to speak to common issues, thereby making them reveal the bases of their thought. He compares the formative tradition with that of the realist to illustrate the development of both theories." The final secion of the book deals with contemporary French film theory which is still in the process of develping. Andrew locates these film theories in the contect of larger intellectual movements, including Gestalt psychology, Russian formalism, Neo-Kantianism and Existentialism." -- Back cover Notes: Includes index; Bibliography: p. 261-272 ISBN: 0195019911 : $3.95 (U.S.) LON: 75025465; 741859 Contents: Introduction -- Part 1 : The formative tradition -- Hugo Munsterberg.

The mass ornament : Weimar essays / Siegfried Kracauer ; translated, edited, and with an introduction by Thomas Y. Levin
Cambridge, MA: Harvard University Press, 1995.
Call No: 62(081):408.1(430) KRA Author: Kracauer, Siegfried Source: US Place: Cambridge, MA Publisher: Harvard University Press PubDate: 1995 PhysDes: 403 p. ; 24 cm Subject: POPULAR CULTURE AND THE CINEMA. GERMANY; CRITICISM; THEORY; KRACAUER, SIEGFRIED; FRANKFURT SCHOOL Summary: This book is a celebration of the masses - their tastes, amusements, and everyday lives. Taking up the master themes of modernity, such as isolation and alienation, mass culture and urban experience, and the relation between the group and the individual, Kracauer explores a kaleidoscope of topics: shopping arcades, the cinema, bestsellers and their readers, photography, dance, hotel lobbies, Kafka, the Bible, and boredom. For Kracauer, the most revelatory facets of modern metropolitan life lie on the surface, in the ephemeral and the marginal. The Mass Ornament today remains a refreshing tribute to popular culture, and its impressively interdisciplinary essays continue to shed light not only on Kracauer's later work but also on the ideas of the Frankfurt School, the genealogy of film theory and cultural studies, Weimar cultural politics, and, not least, the exigencies of intellectual exile. This volume presents the full scope of his gifts as one of the most wide-ranging and penetrating interpreters of modern life. [Taken from back cover.] ISBN: 067455163X More info

Theorising national cinema / Valentina Vitali and Paul Willemen (eds)
London: British Film Institute, London, 2006.
Call No: 408.1 THE Author: Vitali, Valentina; Willemen, Paul CorpAuthor: BFI Source: UK Place: London Publisher: British Film Institute, London PubDate: 2006 PhysDes: 326 p. ill. : 24 cm Subject: ASIAN COUNTRIES; NATIONAL CULTURE AND THE CINEMA; JAPAN; KOREA; REPUBLIC OF IRELAND; LATIN AMERICAN COUNTRIES; KRACAUER, SIEGFRIED; BURCH, NOEL; RUSSIA; FRANCE; TAIWAN; PALESTINE; ARAB COUNTRIES; INDIA; ASIAN COUNTRIES; EUROPEAN COUNTRIES; NATIONAL CULTURE AND THE CINEMA; NATIONAL CULTURE IN FILMS; NATIONAL IDENTITY AND THE CINEMA; NATIONAL IDENTITY IN FILMS; GLOBALISATION Summary: Why do we think of clusters of films as a 'national cinema'? Why has the relationship between the nation and film become so widely and uncritically accepted? Theorising National Cinema is a major contribution to work on national cinemas, by many of the leading scholars in the filed. It addresses the knotty and complex relationships between cinema and national identity, showing that the nationality of a cinema production company, and of the films it made, have not always been seen as pertinent. The volume begins by reviewing and rethinking the concept of national cinema in an age of globalisation, and it goes on to chart the parallel developments of national film industries and the idea of the nation state in countries as diverse as Japan, South Korea, Russia, France and Italy. The issue of a 'national cinema' for nation states of contested status, with disputed borders or displaced peoples, is discussed in relation to film-making in Taiwan, Ireland and Palestine. The contributors also consider the future of national cinema in an age of transnational cultural flows, exploring issues of national identity and cinema in Latin America, Asia, the Middle-East, India, Africa and Europe.
