From Russia with Love: A Critical Reader

Maggie Hennefeld / Brown University

This panel seeks to explore a diverse range of questions, contexts, and ideas about the relationship between film and comedy in order to provide new approaches to problems of representation in cinema. Work on film comedy has explored the capacity for humor to represent the unrepresentable: from sexual innuendo in classic screwball comedies, to political satire in documentary filmmaking, to silent slapstick's provocative reimaginations of modernity. How does looking closely at comedy help us understand cinema's capacity to represent time and space? What are the limits and potentials of comedic interventions in social politics (e.g. slapstick portrayals of domestic politics or of war and state violence)?
