Shadow Cinema: The Historical and Production Context of Unmade Films

De Montfort University
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, December 8, 2017

Unmade films are a burgeoning area of scholarly inquiry. The rise of the film archive, from the Michael Klinger Papers and Hammer Archive, to the John Boorman Papers and Stanley Kubrick Archive, all have unearthed a treasure trove of abandoned or halted projects, left unmade for a range of industrial, cultural and political contexts. This also extends to unreleased cinema, those projects that were abandoned in pre-production, cut short in production, or simply never distributed, or removed from circulation.

In postsocialist China, the boundaries between the practice of artmaking and filmmaking, and the spaces of contemporary art and cinema, have rarely been distinct. Instead, artistic practices in China are characterized by a chaos of formats, an ambivalence about presentational modes and an implicit or explicit acknowledgement of mainstream representational and presentational formats. Moving image art has become a potent analytic and practical category for art history and film scholars to examine the alternative production, exhibition and funding models that facilitate the migration of filmmakers into the spaces of art and artists into the spaces of film.

MONSTERS VS. ALIENS: GENDER, POWER, AND SEXUALITY IN THE ALIEN AND UNDERWORLD FILMS

 

The portrayal of women warriors in literature and popular culture is a subject of study in history, literary studies, film studies, folklore, and mythology.  In 2011, Rebecca Stringer noted the archetypal figure of the woman warrior is an example of a normal thing that happens in some cultures, while also being a counter stereotype, opporing the normal construction of war, violence and agression as masculine.  This convention-defying position makes the female warrior (or, shero, heroine, hero) a prominent topic of investigation for discourses surrounding female power and gender roles in society.
