The documentary film is a non-fictional motion picture that shapes and interprets factual material; the intent is to capture "reality" with a view to inform, educate, entertain, or maintain a historical record. Documentaries have contributed to the development of realism in movies; the style has been influential from the earliest days of filmmaking. Critic and theoretician Bill Nichols has characterised it as "a practice, a cinematic tradition, and a mode of audience reception that remains without clear boundaries".

The sudden outbreak of a pandemic makes us revisit what “normal” is comprised of. We saw this recently and now “new normal” has become integral part of our conversations.

Edited Collection: Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

Sunday, October 31, 2021

In the world of teen drama (or YA drama, as some prefer), there are a number of ways to represent adolescence and its attendant horrors, and we’ve seen a great deal of fantasy-based approaches; beginning with Buffy, some establish that high school is actual hell. But few series come close to Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’s devotion to that idea. The Netflix series (2018-20), based on the Archie Comics spin-off and featuring a much darker version of Sabrina Spellman, may be difficult for audiences to reconcile with ABC’s Sabrina the Teenage Witch, the previous adaptation. While one is a teen sitcom in which Sabrina’s powers get her into wacky situations, and she is supported by a talking Salem the cat, the other might feel closer to The Craft.

Thursday, September 30, 2021

In 2003 Peter Lang published The Emperor’s Old Groove: Decolonizing Disney’s Magic Kingdom, edited by Brenda Ayres. In this collection of 14 essays, the contributors argue that as of 2002, Disney’s film animation has continued to be a surreptitious colonizing force that manipulates the psychological, cultural, and political identities of consumers, predominantly children. Since then, Walt Disney Animation Studios and its subsidiaries, affiliates, and distributing companies have produced 63 additional film animations. Have they altered their portrayal of multiculturalism and SGM (Sexual and Gender Minorities) to be more inclusive and  normative? Coeditors Brenda Ayres and Sarah E.

LAST CALL: Dune, from Herbert to Villeneuve (PAMLA, roundtable, conducted remotely)

Frank Herbert’s Dune (1965) is as celebrated as it is because of its depth and complexity, of course. It’s also, however, presumably, because its storyline, and that of its two initial sequels, Dune Messiah (1969) and Children of Dune (1976), of a crusade led by a prophet with superhuman abilities and its legacy, resonated with readers awash in social and political turbulence. It’s not difficult to imagine, then, that adaptations have emerged at regular intervals for similar reasons, beginning with David Lynch’s Dune (1984), John Harrison’s Dune (2000) and Children of Dune (2003), and now Denis Villeneuve’s forthcoming Dune (2021).
