Women in film : an international guide( Book )

11 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and Undetermined and held by 340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the days of silents, women have been participating in the art, craft, and technology of filmmaking. Yet many of those women, especially the early pioneers, have remained obscure, and have never achieved the same critical recognition as their male counterparts--until now. This is the first book to recover women's "lost" contributions to the advancement of film as a medium. Different from any other guide in its unique focus and international scope, this comprehensive resource looks at the entire history of film from a feminist perspective. In over 600 entries, eighty female contributors explore the many roles women have played in the development and continuation of an art form and industry generally regarded as male-dominated. Each biographical entry features the individual's accomplishments in film, including a helpful filmography, and often, a bibliography. There are hundreds of cross-references to aid in further research. You'll find biographical and technical discussions of such directors as Dorothy Arzner, Agnes Varda, Maya Deren, Alice Guy, Leni Riefenstahl, and Claudia Weill; screenwriters Elaine May, Suso Cecchi D'Amico, and Marie Epstein; and actresses Lauren Bacall, Diana Dors, Nargis, Asta Nielsen, and Marilyn Monroe. Films from all over the world are covered, including work originating in New Zealand, Eastern Europe, Great Britain, India, Guatemala, Chile, and other countries. Important cinematic terms and ideas such as mise-en-scène and cinema novo are explained, as well as genres that feature popular images of women--from "dumb blondes" to femmes fatales to stereotypes of all stripes. Profiles of independent film movements, journals, critics, film festivals, and more, round out the listings.--Adapted from back cover

Locating memory : photographic acts( Book )

13 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As a visual medium, the photograph has many culturally resonant properties that it shares with no other medium. These essays develop innovative cultural strategies for reading, re-reading and re-using photographs, as well as for (re)creating photographs and other artworks and evoke varied sites of memory in contemporary landscapes: from sites of war and other violence through the lost places of indigenous peoples to the once-familiar everyday places of home, family, neighborhood and community. Paying close attention to the settings in which such photographs are made and used--family collections, public archives, museums, newspapers, art galleries--the contributors consider how meanings in photographs may be shifted, challenged and renewed over time and for different purposes--from historical inquiry to quests for personal, familial, ethnic and national identity
