Expressionism and Film, originally published in German in 1926, is not only a classic of film history, but also an important work from the early phase of modern media history. Written with analytical brilliance and historical vision by a well-known contemporary of the expressionist movement, it captures Expressionism at the time of its impending conclusion—as an intersection of world view, resoluteness of form, and medial transition. Though one of the most frequently-cited works of Weimar culture, Kurtz’s groundbreaking work, which is on a par with Siegfried Kracauer’s From Caligari to Hitler and Lotte Eisner’s The Haunted Screen, has never been published in English. Its relevance and historical contexts are analyzed in a concise afterword by the Swiss scholars Christian Kiening and Ulrich Johannes Beil.

One of the most visually striking traditions in cinema, for too long Expressionism has been a neglected critical category of research in film history and aesthetics. The fifteen essays in this anthology remedies this by revisiting key German films like The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920) and Nosferatu (1922), and also provide original critical research into more obscure titles like Nerven (1919) and The Phantom Carriage (1921), films that were produced in the silent and early sound era in countries ranging from France, Sweden and Hungary, to the United States and Mexico. An innovative and wide-ranging collection, Expressionism in the Cinema re-canonizes the classical Expressionist aesthetic, extending the critical and historical discussion beyond pre-existing scholarship into comparative and interdisciplinary areas of film research that reach across national boundaries.

"In the past, the various categories of Expressionism have usually been treated separately. The [title] is the first comprehensive publication ever to examine the remarkable interplay of --and parallel developments in-- art, film, literautre, theater, dance, and architecture in the years 1905 to 1925. The Exhibition and the catalogue bring together the masterpieces of Expressionist film such as 'The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari' and 'Genuine', architectural models, set designs, stage photographs, poster art, dance masks, paintings, drawings, prints, and sculptures to present a unique panorama of the Expressionist period. Addressing a disastrous war, a revolution, urban modernity, and the reinvention of the world, this is the first book in which renowned authors, key works, and source texts from all disciplines come together to allow the reader to thoroughly experience the ways in which the various areas of activity mutually influenced each other, as well as the equally dramatic and fascinating fruits of Expressionism's networks." --Jacket.

Weimar Cinema And After

German cinema of the 1920s is still regarded as one of the 'golden ages' of world cinema. Films such as The Cabinet of Dr Caligari, Dr Mabuse the Gambler, Nosferatu, Metropolis, Pandora's Box and The Blue Angel have long been canonised as classics, but they are also among the key films defining an image of Germany as a nation uneasy with itself. The work of directors like Fritz Lang, F.W. Murnau and G.W. Pabst, which having apparently announced the horrors of fascism, while testifying to the traumas of a defeated nation, still casts a long shadow over cinema in Germany, leaving film history and political history permanently intertwined. Weimar Cinema and After offers a fresh perspective on this most 'national' of national cinemas, re-evaluating the arguments which view genres and movements such as 'films of the fantastic', 'Nazi Cinema', 'film noir' and 'New German Cinema' as typically German contributions to twentieth century visual culture. Thomas Elsaesser questions conventional readings which link these genres to romanticism and expressionism, and offers new approaches to analysing the function of national cinema in an advanced 'culture industry' and in a Germany constantly reinventing itself both geographically and politically. Elsaesser argues that German cinema's significance lies less in its ability to promote democracy or predict fascism than in its contribution to the creation of a community sharing a 'historical imaginary' rather than a 'national identity'. In this respect, he argues, German cinema anticipated some of the problems facing contemporary nations in reconstituting their identities by means of media images, memory, and invented traditions.

"Silent Film: A Very Short Introduction covers the full span of the silent era, touching on films and filmmakers from every corner of the globe, and focusing on how the public experienced these films. Silent film evolved during three main periods; early, transitional, and classical. First seen as a technological attraction, it rapidly grew into a medium for telling longer stories. Silent film was genuinely global, with countries all around the world using cinema to tell stories and develop their own industries. Sound was introduced to cinema in the late 1920s, but with elements of silent film still around today, there is an argument for it never having ended"--

Subjective Realist Cinema looks at the fragmented narratives and multiple realities of a wide range of films that depict subjective experience and employ "subjective realist" narration, including recent examples such as Mulholland Drive, Memento, and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. The author proposes that an understanding of the narrative structures of these films, particularly their use of mixed and multiple realities, enhances viewers' enjoyment and comprehension of such films, and that such comprehension offers a key to understanding contemporary filmmaking.

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Pages: 103. Not illustrated. Chapters: Italian Neorealism, Parallel Cinema, Remodernist Film, German Expressionism, Dogme 95, Grupo Cine Liberaci n, Salvador Toscano, New French Extremity, New Queer Cinema, Pluginmanifesto, Mumblecore, Spiritual Film, Third Cinema, Mouth of Garbage Cinema, Poetic Realism, Budapest School, Documentary Film Movement, Cinema Du Look, No Wave Cinema, True Cinema Movement, Italian Futurism, Participatory Cinema, Calligraphism, Soviet Parallel Cinema. Excerpt: The Indian New Wave, commonly known in India as Art Cinema or Parallel Cinema as an alternative to the mainstream commercial cinema, is a specific movement in Indian cinema, known for its serious content, realism and naturalism, with a keen eye on the social-political climate of the times. This movement is distinct from mainstream Bollywood cinema and began around the same time as the French New Wave and Japanese New Wave. The movement was initially led by Bengali cinema (which has produced internationally acclaimed filmmakers such as Satyajit Ray, Mrinal Sen, Ritwik Ghatak, and others) and then gained prominence in the other film industries of India. Realism in Indian cinema dates back to the 1920s and 1930s. One of the earliest examples was V. Shantaram's 1925 silent film classic Sawkari Pash (Indian Shylock), about a poor peasant (portrayed by Shantaram) who "loses his land to a greedy moneylender and is forced to migrate to the city to become a mill worker. Acclaimed as a realistic breakthrough, its shot of a howling dog near a hut, has become a milestone in the march of Indian cinema." The 1937 Shantaram film Duniya Na Mane (The Unexpected) also critiqued the treatment of women in Indian society. The Parallel Cinema movement began to take shape from the late 1940s to the 1960s, by pioneers such as Satyajit Ray, Ritwik Ghatak, Bimal Roy, Mrinal Sen, ...
