Shadows on the Past: Studies in the Historical Fiction Film (Culture and the Moving Image)

Learning well known Hollywood motion pictures from long gone With the Wind to Reds and such distinctive eu movies as l. a. Marseillaise and the increase to strength of Louis XIV, Leger Grindon examines how historic fiction movies interpret the current via a illustration of the past.
The historic fiction movie is characterised via a collection of causes and, Grindon argues, merits to be thought of a style unto itself. Appropriation of ancient occasions can insinuate a film's authority of its topic, veil an purpose, supply an break out into nostalgia, or direct a look for wisdom and origins. using the previous as a fashion of responding to social conflicts within the current, Grindon exhibits how the style promotes a political time table, superseding the effect of scholarship at the public's notion and interpretation of history.

Phantastik — Kult oder Kultur?: Aspekte eines Phänomens in Kunst, Literatur und Film

Als ein Indikator sich anbahnender epochaler Wandlungen dominiert Phantastik viele Bereiche der Kultur, insbesondere der Alltagskultur. Wird in der Phantastik das Inventar der abendländischen Kultur zugleich bewahrt wie in Frage gestellt, so ist es Aufgabe einer gegenwartsbezogenen Phantastikforschung, dies aufzuzeigen und dabei zugleich die spezifischen Transformationsverfahren der Phantastik herauszuarbeiten.

For instance, the allegorical cinema of the 1970s, whose emphasis on the use of the “trope of haunting,” to use Jo Labanyi’s concept, was an effective cinematic mechanism less as a way of negotiating with the conventions of the horror film genre than as a kind of surrealist incursion into the horrific for the representation of the violence of the Spanish Civil War and its repressive aftermath through, as Labanyi has put it, the use of suggestion rather than statement (2007).

Themselves in any form of ­coherent opposition. From this perspective, by the 1960s, Buñuel’s cinema already points to an ambivalent, if not productive, tension between the use of a grand narrative that is the product of modernity, namely Surrealism, and the consciousness of the impossibility of the grand narratives or metanarratives to account for all the dilemmas of human understanding. Indeed, this will be the crucial concern for postmodern thinkers and artists in the subsequent decade when in 1979 Jean-François Lyotard writes his seminal ­ book, La ­condition postmoderne: rapport sur le savoir (The Postmodern Condition: A Rapport on Knowledge).

Then, following his marriage to a pregnant Rucar in a secret civil ceremony so as not to upset either his family or his image as a committed libertarian, 14 Rob Stone and Julián Daniel Gutiérrez-Albilla he stubbornly dedicated himself to crucial efforts at establishing a viable Spanish film industry in his work for the Filmófono company. Between 1934 and 1936 he oversaw the making of four films as producer or “executive director,” which has inspired inconclusive auteurist investigations into La hija de Juan Simón ( Juan Simon’s Daughter, 1935), Don Quintín, el amargao (Don Quintin, the Bitter, 1935), ¿Quién me quiere a mí?
