It identifies a number of dominant themes, explains major theories, concepts and methodologies, and explores the diversity of approaches that have helped shape the international study of stars and stardom. Comparing the stars and star systems of Hollywood, Bollywood, China and many European countries, from the early-twentieth to the first decade of the twenty-first century, Martin Shingler considers the multiple functions of stars: as an elite workforce within the film industry, as actors and performers, as role models and cultural representatives, as icons and images, as transnational and national symbols, and as commodities. The scope of star studies is wide, historically and geographically, but this book helpfully focuses on salient features of the discipline, providing a cogent overview of star studies, while suggesting some useful avenues for further research. Published in the BFI Film Stars series, Star Studies provides an essential theoretical and historical companion to the individual star volumes in the series Notes: "A BFI book." -- Includes bibliographical references (p. 186-219) and index ISBN: 9781844574902 Contents: Machine generated contents note: 1.Star Studies: Mapping Out the Field of Star Scholarship Within Film Studies -- 2.Methods: Ways of Analysing Screen Performance -- 3.Star Quality: In Search of the Prerequisites For Stardom -- 4.Star Systems: The Mechanics of Star Production -- 5.Star Identities: From Image to Persona and Publicity to Gossip -- 6.Unstable Symbols: On the Representativeness of Film Star More info

Writing national cinema : film journals and film culture in Peru / Jeffrey Middents
Hanover, N.H. ; London: Dartmouth College, 2009.
Call No: 71(85) MID Author: Middents, Jeffrey Source: US Place: Hanover, N.H. ; London Publisher: Dartmouth College PubDate: 2009 PhysDes: viii, 276 p. : ill. ; 24 cm Subject: PERU; CRITICISM; CRITICISM: METHODOLOGY OF FILM CRITICISM Summary: "Writing National Cinema traces the twenty-year history of the Peruvian film journal Hablemos de cine alongside that of Peruvian filmmaking and film culture. Similar to the influential French journal Cahiers du cinema, Hablemos de cine began with a group of young critics interested in claiming the director's use of mise-en-scene as the exclusive method of film analysis rather than thematic or star-oriented topics - hence, the title of the publication, derived from their battle cry at post-screening discussions: "Let's talk about film." Their critical authority grew with the rise of local filmmaking and the nationalist fervor of the late 1960s and early 1970s.".
"When government sponsorship spurred feature filmmaking in the mid-1970s, their perspective eschewed the politically militant readings that characterized most writing and film from the rest of Latin America at the time. by the 1980s, the critics at Hablemos de cine had helped to engender a commercial, Hollywood-influenced cinematic vision - best exemplified by Peruvian auteur Francisco Lombardi - and stimulated a unique, if isolating, national identity through the film." "The first book-length study of Peruvian film culture to appear in English, Middents's work offers a thoughtful consideration of the impact of criticism on the visual stylings of a national cinema."--BOOK JACKET ISBN: 9781584657767 Donation: donated by Senses of Cinema, 2012 Contents: A history of the Peruvian cinematic tradition -- Publication, authority, identity: constructing the film journal -- Shaping Peruvian taste: "good" and "bad" Peruvian movies -- Latin American dis/connections: Peru versus the new Latin American cinema -- For a few minutes: considering the short-film industry -- Creating the "Lombardi generation": the rise of an urban cinematic aesthetic -- The changing of the guard: Peruvian cinema in the twenty-first century More info
