Abstract

Onde se encontra a análise fílmica hoje? O que é que a teoria de cinema anda a desenvolver na obscuridade? Este campo, tal como foi definido profissionalmente (pelo menos no mundo académico anglo-saxónico), encontra-se actualmente dividido entre historiadores interessados no contexto das grandes formações da modernidade e connoisseurs que reclamam o regresso estilístico de coisas antiquadas como a visão autoral, o tom ou a mise-en-scène. Mas há também outras correntes, vitais e inventivas – na crítica, na internet, em pequenas revistas, em conferências renegadas um pouco por todo o lado –, que não estamos a conseguir escutar em nenhum dos canais oficiais. Último Dia Todos os Dias, de Adrian Martin – nesta edição acompanhado do ensaio “Avatares do Encontro” –, lança uma luz sobre estas novas e excitantes avenidas. Publicado originalmente como Last Day Every Day: Figural Thinking from Auerbach and Kracauer to Agamben and Brenez, em 2012, por Dead Letter Office, uma série da editora punctum books. Esta edição foi produzida conjuntamente por Centro de Estudos Comparatistas | Faculdade de Letras da Universidade de Lisboa e punctum books, 2015.

Abstract

Where is the film analysis today? What are you doing, in the dark, the theory of cinema? This field, as it has been professionally defined (at least in the Anglo-American academic world), is currently divided between historians interested in the social context that examine the great formations of modernity, and experts in the style that They demand the return of outmoded things such as authorial vision, tone, and staging. But there are also other currents, vital and inventive, of which we are hardly hearing anything in any of the official channels. Last day each day , which for this edition has been extended with the essay “Avatars of the meeting”, shines a light on one of these new and exciting ways.

Abstract

Where is film analysis at today? What is cinema theory up to, behind our backs? The field, as professionally defined (at least in the Anglo-American academic world), is presently divided between contextual historians who turn to broad formations of modernity, and stylistic connoisseurs who call for a return to old-fashioned things like authorial vision, tone, and mise en scène. But there are other, vital, inventive currents happening — in criticism, on the Internet, in small magazines, and renegade conferences everywhere — which we are not hearing much about in any official way. Last Day Every Day shines a light on one of these exciting new avenues. Is there a way to bring together, in a refreshed manner, textual logic, hermeneutic interpretation, theoretical speculation, and socio-political history? A way to break the deadlock between classical approaches that sought organic coherence in film works, and poststructuralist approaches that exposed the heterogeneity of all texts and scattered the pieces to the four winds? A way to attend to the minute materiality of cinema, while grasping and contesting the histories imbricated in every image and sound?

Abstract

Hokum!, the first book to take a comprehensive view of short-subject slapstick comedy in the early sound era, challenges the received wisdom that sound destroyed the slapstick tradition. Author Rob King explores the slapstick short’s Depression-era development against a backdrop of changes in film industry practice, comedic tastes, and moviegoing culture. Each chapter is grounded in case studies of comedians and comic teams, including the Three Stooges, Laurel and Hardy, and Robert Benchley. The book also examines how the past legacy of silent-era slapstick was subsequently reimagined as part of a nostalgic mythology of Hollywood’s youth.

Abstract

Archivo, memoria, cine, literatura y política. Desde una perspectiva intermedial, los ensayos reunidos en el libro analizan las relaciones entre estos campos en Argentina y Chile durante las últimas décadas. Un eje aborda las estrategias de (anti)memoria en dictadura, postdictadura y las democracias neoliberales, entre los años 80 y la actualidad; otro eje reflexiona sobre las nuevas coordenadas del cine argentino como territorio paradigmático del arte contemporáneo. Se articulan textos y films de los chilenos Gonzalo Justiniano, Pablo Larraín, Enrique Lihn, Germán Marín, Gonzalo Millán, Pablo Perelman y varias documentalistas chilenas; y films de los argentinos Lisandro Alonso, Anahí Berneri, Albertina Carri, Santiago Loza, Lucrecia Martel, Santiago Mitre y Celina Murga.

Abstract

This book discusses contemporary film in all the main countries of Southeast Asia, and the social practices and ideologies which films either represent or oppose. It shows how film acquires signification through cultural interpretation, and how film also serves as a site of contestations between social and political agents seeking to promote, challenge, or erase certain meanings, messages or ideas from public circulation. A unique feature of the book is that it focuses as much on films as it does on the societies from which these films emerge: it considers the reasons for film-makers taking the positions they take; the positions and counter-positions taken; the response of different communities; and the extent to which these interventions are connected to global flows of culture and capital. &#xD;

Abstract

Our fear of the world ending, like our fear of the dark, is ancient, deep-seated and perennial. It crosses boundaries of space and time, recurs in all human communities and finds expression in every aspect of cultural production – from pre-historic cave paintings to high-tech computer games.This book examines historical and imaginary scenarios of Apocalypse, the depiction of its likely triggers, and imagined landscapesin the aftermath of global destruction. Its discussion moves effortlessly from classic novels including Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World, George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four and Margaret Atwood’s Oryx and Crake, to blockbuster films such as Blade Runner, Armageddon and The Terminator. The author also takes into account religious doctrine, scientific research and the visual arts to create a penetrating, multi-disciplinary study that provides profound insight into one of Western culture’s darkest and most enduring preoccupations.
