The Soul of Cinema: Essays on Arts & Faith’s Top 100 Spiritually Significant Films -- Last minute substitution needed!
The Soul of Cinema: Essays on Arts & Faith’s Top 100 Spiritually Significant Films
Since 2004, readers and writers at the Art & Faith website have created six lists of “spiritually significant” films, culminating in its 2020 iteration of the group’s Top 100 films. (To see this list visit http://artsandfaith.com) To celebrate the most recent list, the editors will be publishing an anthology of essays through Cambridge Scholars P.
This anthology is under contract and scheduled to go to the publisher on August 1st, but one contributor recently withdrew his paper, leaving an opportunity for a last-minute substitution. The editor is looking for an essay on or about one of the following films (or directors) from the A&F Top 100 List:
- Do The Right Thing (Spike Lee)
- Selma (Ava DuVernay)
- I am Not Your Negro (Raoul Peck)
- Munyurangabo (Lee Isaac Chung)
- To Sleep with Anger (Charles Burnett)
"Spiritually Significant" is broadly defined for this list and anthology, so a range of different approaches is welcome. (Other essays include reception histories, reader-response appreciations, close readings, and traditional scholarly examinations of a film's cultural and artistic significance.)
The editor is not averse to accepting a previously written (or revised) work, so long as the author retains copyright permission to allow for inclusion in this anthology.
