Cinema in service of the state : perspectives on film culture in the GDR and Czechoslovakia, 1945-1960 by Lars Karl( )

17 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and held by 1,192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The national cinemas of Czechoslovakia and East Germany were two of the most vital sites of filmmaking in the Eastern Bloc, and over the course of two decades they contributed to and were shaped by such significant developments as Sovietization, de-Stalinization and the conservative retrenchment of the late 1950s. This volume comprehensively explores the postwar film cultures of both nations, using a "stereoscopic" approach that traces their similarities and divergences to form a richly contextualized portrait. Ranging from features to children's cinema to film festivals, the studies gathered here provide new insights into the ideological, political and economic dimensions of Cold War cultural production
Film professionals in Nazi-occupied Europe : mediation between the national-socialist cultural "New Order" and local structures by Pavel Skopal( )

6 editions published in 2021 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book analyses the film industries and cinema cultures of Nazi-occupied countries (1939-1945) from the point of view of individuals: local "captains of industry", cinema managers, those working for film studios and officials authorized to navigate film policy. The book considers these people from a historical perspective, taking into account their career before the occupation and, where relevant, pays attention to their post-war lives. The perspectives of these historical agents" contributes to an understanding of how top-down orders and haphazard signals from the occupying administration were moulded, adjusted and distorted in the process of their translation and implementation. This edited collection offers a more dynamic and less deterministic approach to research on the international expansion of Third-Reich cinema in World War Two; an approach that strives to balance the role of individual agency with the structural determinants. The case studies presented in this book cover the territories of Belgium, Czechoslovakia, France, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland and the Soviet Union. Pavel Skopal is Associate Professor and department head at the Department of Film Studies and Audio-visual Culture, Masaryk University, Brno, Czech Republic. His recent books include The Cinema of the North Triangle (2014) and Cinema in Service of the State (2015, co-edited with Lars Karl). Skopal has published in international journals including Film History, Historical Journal of Film, Radio and Television, and Convergence. Roel Vande Winkel is Associate Professor in Film & TV Studies at KU Leuven and at LUCA School of Arts, Belgium. He is associate editor of Historical Journal of Film, Radio and Television, and his recent books include Researching Newsreels. Local, National and Transnational Case Studies (2018, with Ciara Chambers and Mats Jönsson), Silencing Cinema: Film Censorship around the World (2013, with Daniel Biltereyst) and Cinema and the Swastika: The International Expansion of Third Reich Cinema (2011 revised, with David Welch)
