Following World War II a diverse and intense surrealist film culture took shape. Surrealist filmmakers made experimental short films, documentaries, and feature films, while surrealist writers were a steady presence in French film criticism. With this our volume Surrealism and Film After 1945, we present the first anthology on this rich but understudied topic. The volume will feature contributions on filmmakers connected with surrealism, the surrealist reception and exhibition of film, and the surrealist contributions to animation, documentary, and feminist film.

Since Muybridge’s chronophotographic experiments, the relationship between cinema and time has been well documented. Less obvious, perhaps, is the relationship of cinema with space. Following the so-called digital mutation of recording and viewing technologies, this issue has nonetheless made its way to the forefront of cinema and media studies. It is not only that moviegoing is being decentered by the rise of portable viewing platforms — as cinema happens more and more outside of traditional theatres —, but also that the usual medium of inscription of film — the celluloid base — has been radically opened by new media.
