POLAND; POLITICS AND THE CINEMA. 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.

Call No: 408.1 CIN Author: Hjort, Mette; MacKenzie, Scott, 1967 Place: London New York Publisher: Routledge PubDate: 2000 PhysDes: xvi, 332 p., ill., 25 cm Subject: NATIONAL IDENTITY AND THE CINEMA; COPRODUCTION. EUROPEAN COUNTRIES; UNITED KINGDOM : SCOTLAND; INDONESIA; POLAND; TURKEY; INDIA; GERMANY; STATE AND THE CINEMA; CAPRA, FRANK Summary: Leading film scholars, philosophers and sociologists consider the ways in which film production and reception are shaped by ideas of national identity and belonging. The contributors discuss a wide range of cinemas, in Europe, Asia and the Americas, exploring the relationship between nation states for both the concept and the reality of national cinema.
In the book’s first three sections, contributors explore sociological approaches to national identity, challenge established ideas about ‘national cinema’, and consider the ways in which national states – from the former Soviet Union to Contemporary Scotland – use cinema in their efforts to create a national cinema, and consider how images of the nation are understood by audiences both at home and abroad.

It reworks Pasolini's landmark concept of 'the cinema of poetry' to look at the transformation of film form in its encounter with society, the sacred, the subjective and the presence of the camera. In the 1970s, the influential forms of a cinema of poetry are analysed in key features by Altman, Herzog, Malick, Scorsese, Weir, Von Trotta and Tarkovsky while in the 1980s and 1990s the emergence of new filmmakers has meant a diffusion of different cinemas of poetry using new techniques and new poetries. Of key importance here is the work of Kieslowski, Lynch, Egoyan, Campion, Greenaway, Zhang Yimou, Tran Anh Hung and Wong Kar-Wai, as well as the reinvention of science fiction and film noir in American genre."

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.

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.

Paula Rabinowitz discusses the ways in which these four media shaped truth-claims and political agency over the decades: in the 1930s about poverty, labor and popular culture during the depression; in the 1960s, about the Vietnam War, racism, work and the counterculture; and in the 1980s, about feminist and gay critiques of gender, history, narrative and cinema...Rabinowitz argues that the gendering ov vision that occurs when narratives conform to conventional genres profoundly affects the relation of documentarian to subject. She goes on to define this gendering of vision in documentary as an ethnographic process. Ultimately, this polemical study challenges the construction of the spectato in psychoanalytic film theory, and articulates a new model for theorizing power relations in culture and history." -- taken from back cover.
