Abstract

The impact of French film critic André Bazin (1918-1958) on the development of film studies, though generally acknowledged, remains contested. A passionate initiator of film culture during his lifetime, his ideas have been challenged, defended and revived throughout his afterlife. Studying Film with André Bazin offers an entirely original interpretation of major concepts from Bazin’s legacy, such as auteur theory, realism, film language and the influence of film on other arts (poetry and painting in particular). By examining mostly unknown and uncollected texts, Blandine Joret explains Bazin’s methodology and adopts it in a contemporary reading, linking his ideas to major philosophical and scientific frameworks as well as more recent media practices such as advertising, CGI, 3D cinema and Virtual Reality. In tune with 21st-century concerns in media culture and film studies, this book addresses a wide readership of film scholars, students and cinephiles.

Abstract

Images of flappers, garçonnes, Modern Girls, neue Frauen, and trampky—all embodiments of the dashing New Woman—symbolized an expanded public role for women from the suffragist era through the dawn of 1960s feminism. Chronicling nearly a century of global challenges to gender norms, The New Woman International: Representations in Photography and Film from the 1870s through the 1960s is the first book to examine modern femininity's ongoing relationship with the nineteenth and twentieth centuries' most influential new media: photography and film. This volume examines the ways in which novel ideas about women's roles in society and politics were disseminated through these technological media, and it probes the significance of radical changes in female fashion, appearance, and sexual identity. Additionally, these original essays explore the manner in which New Women artists used photography and film to respond creatively to gendered stereotypes and to reconceive of ways of being a woman in a rapidly modernizing world. The New Woman International brings together different generations of scholars and curators who are experts in gender, photography, literature, mass media, and film to analyze the New Woman from her inception in the later nineteenth century through her full development in the interwar period, and the expansion of her forms in subsequent decades. Arranged both chronologically and thematically, these essays show how controversial female ideals figured in discourses including those on gender norms, race, technology, sexuality, female agency, science, media representation, modernism, commercial culture, internationalism, colonialism, and transnational modernity. In exploring these topics through images that range from montages to newspapers' halftone prints to film stills, this book investigates the terms of gendered representation as a process in which women were as much agents as allegories. Inaugurating a new chapter in the scholarship of representation and New Womanhood and spanning North America, Western and Eastern Europe, Asia, and the colonial contexts of Africa and the Pacific, this volume reveals the ways in which a feminine ideal circled the globe to be translated into numerous visual languages.

Abstract

Unter »Tableau vivant« (Lebende Bilder) versteht man ein Gesellschaftsspiel des 18. und 19. Jahrhunderts, das darin bestand, Gemälde durch lebende Personen nachzustellen. Diderot und Goethe begeisterten sich für diese - heute längst vergessene - Bilderpraxis. Umso überraschender ist es, die anachronistische Kunst nicht nur in Stummfilmen, sondern auch in gegenwärtigen Spielfilmen wieder zu entdecken. Was passiert mit dem Filmbild, wenn es sich auf die Struktur unbewegter, nach Gemälden gestellter Bilder einlässt und diese verlebendigt? Das Buch widmet sich diesem ungewöhnlichen Bildphänomen aus historischer und bildwissenschaftlicher Sicht und zeigt auf, welche subversiven Kräfte durch die Gemäldenachstellungen im Film freigesetzt werden und zu welchen diegetischen Erweiterungen diese führen können. Die interdisziplinär ausgerichtete Studie versucht dabei, zwischen Kunstgeschichte und Filmwissenschaft zu vermitteln.

Abstract

Filme über den Holocaust führen nach wie vor zu kontroversen Diskussionen, insbesondere über die Art ihres Umgangs mit der Shoah. Abgesehen von wenigen Ausnahmen besteht die filmwissenschaftliche Literatur zum Thema Holocaust im Film jedoch aus Beiträgen zu einzelnen Filmen ohne übergreifende Fragestellung. Schwerpunkt dieser Studie ist daher eine Typologie, welche die Wirkung dieser Filme auf den Zuschauer analysiert - unter Berücksichtigung der besonderen Ästhetik und der damit einhergehenden spezifischen Wahrnehmungsangebote. Die analysierten Filme - darunter u.a. »Nacht und Nebel«, »Schindlers Liste«, »Das Leben ist schön«, »Zug des Lebens« und »Birkenau und Rosenfeld« - stellen gleichzeitig einen Aufriss der filmischen Auseinandersetzung mit der Shoah seit 1945 dar.

Abstract

Verhoeff investigates the emergence of the western genre, made in the first two decades of cinema (1895-1915). By analyzing many unknown and forgotten films from international archives she traces the relationships between films about the American West, their surrounding films, and other popular media such as photography, painting, (pulp) literature, Wild West Shows and popular ethnography. Through this exploration of archival material she raises new questions of historiography and provides a model for historical analysis. These first traces of the Western film reveal a preoccupation with presence and actuality that informs us about the way in which film, as new medium, took shape within the context of its contemporary visual culture.

Abstract

This monograph departs from traditional studies of national cinema by accentuating the intercultural and intertextual links between Malaysian films and Asian (as well as European and American) film practices. Using cross-cultural analysis, the author characterizes Malaysia as a pluralist society consisting of a multiplicity of cultural identities. Malaysian film reflects this remarkable heterogeneity, particularly evident in the impact of the Indian and Hong Kong cinema. Detailed analyses of a selection of Malaysian films highlight their cultural complexities, while noting the tension between cultural inclusivity and ethnic exclusivity at the heart of this cinema.

Abstract

There is a tension between the requirements of theoretical abstraction and the capacities of the film medium, where everything that we see on screen is concrete: A train arriving at a station, a tree, bodies, faces. Since the complex theories of montage in Soviet cinema, however, there have continuously been attempts to express theoretical issues by combining shots, thus creating a visual form of thinking. This book brings together two major filmmakers-French New Wave master Jean-Luc Godard and German avant-gardist Harun Farocki to explore the fundamental tension between theoretical abstraction and the capacities of film itself, a medium where everything seen onscreen is necessarily concrete. Volker Pantenburg shows how these two filmmakers explored the potential of combined shots and montage to create "film as theory."
