Significations of Blackness: American cinema and the idea of a black film by Michael Boyce Gillespie( )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While attentive to the fact that the 'black' of black film is informed by the constitutive cultural fiction of race as sociological category, the dissertation insists that this fiction cannot and should not be the exclusive determination of a black film hermeneutics. Thus, the project is committed to appreciating black film in more inclusive terms as an unfinalizable dialogue between American cinema, film form/aesthetics, and black expressive culture. Chapter One argues that Coonskin (Ralph Bakshi, 1975) is as an exercise in the racial grotesque and that the film performs a radical re-signification and critique of the racial stereotype. Chapter Two is a consideration of Chameleon Street (Wendell B. Harris Jr., 1991) and the significant ways the protagonist of the film complicates ideas of passing and mimicry as he functions as a signifying menace
Trying To Get Over: African American Directors After Blaxploitation, 1977--1986 by Keith Corson( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The representation and involvement of African Americans in the film industry took a dramatic downturn following the demise of the blaxploitation cycle. With an average of over thirty black-focused films released per year between 1972 and 1976, narrative films featuring black stars or specifically targeting a black audience dwindled to only a handful of annual releases in the following decade due in large part to the changing film industry and a broader conservative shift in American politics. The supposed inroads of black artists in Hollywood during the 1970s largely evaporated, with the first group of black directors to work in Hollywood finding themselves shut out of the industry only a half-decade later. This dissertation charts the careers of the eight black directors who found a way to complete full-length features and secure commercial distribution in the decade following the blaxploitation cycle. Although they shared their struggles trying to carve out a space in an industry that was increasingly hostile to black involvement, the manner in which these eight directors navigated the industry varied widely, to say nothing of their personal and political sensibilities. This dissertation examines the multifaceted careers of Michael Schultz, Sidney Poitier, Jamaa Fanaka, Fred "the Hammer" Williamson, Richard Pryor, Prince, Gilbert Moses, and Stan Lathan, taking into account their differing approaches to filmmaking while also making a case for their shared legacy in shaping black popular culture in the 1980s and beyond

"In this groundbreaking documentary from the Independent Film channel, filmmaker Isaac Julien takes us back to the early 70s and the explosion of blaxploitation films, today one of American cinema's most beloved cult genres. The original guilty pleasure, these fun and energetic films had all the action, comedy, sex and groovy music you could want in two hours worth of entertainment"--Container
Neither Fish Nor Fowl: Imagining Bisexuality in the Cinema by Beth Carol Roberts( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This dissertation investigates how bisexuality is represented in the cinema. Its key components include a genealogy of critical and theoretical discourses in the field and a discourse analysis of selected film texts and their critical reception. Based on this research, I argue that the coding of bisexuality depends not only on the ordering of same- and other-sex attractions, but also on their frequency and duration. That is, the medium is as important as the form to the legibility of bisexuality in the movies. For just as narratives activate (or negate) spatio-temporal configurations of bisexuality, expressing it as the coincidence or coexistence of hetero- and homosexual activities, so too does the time/space continuum of the cinema arbitrate the ways viewers read those events. What is at work here is not simply a coding, which transfers a set of meanings from text to text regardless of its formal architecture, but rather three kinds of codes (sexuality, narrative, cinema) that cascade in ways that have both ideological and epistemological implications

The End at The End: Apocalyptic Cinema at the Close of a Millennium by Julian Cornell( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This dissertation examines the enduring popularity of apocalypticism in mainstream films at the end of the 20th century. Considered synonymous with disaster fictions, the apocalyptic is a meaning generating system which holds a privileged place in American cultural and political discourse. Employing a wide ranging methodology grounded in cultural history this project endeavors to explain how the apocalyptic can be understood as an allegorical mode of emplotment, in Hayden White's terminology, a way to make historical process comprehensible. Drawing upon the work of Frank Kermode, my study considers the apocalyptic to be a sense-making template through which historical events are filtered in order to provide them with immanence and transcendent meaning. The resiliency and pliability of the apocalyptic mode can be attributed to its open-ended allegorical structure, by the indeterminate nature of its sign system which allows it to be available for either critiquing or affirming hegemonic structures. I will explore how this narrative, derived from religious sources, has been appropriated in the secular arena, as a paradigmatic means to engage the sense of crisis held to be symptomatic of postmodernity
Reversing the lens : ethnicity, race, gender, and sexuality through film by Jun Xing( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Hip hop on film : performance culture, urban space, and genre transformation in the 1980s by Kimberley Monteyne( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation examines a cycle of films released between 1982 and 1985, that initially brought hip hop culture to audiences through the format of the musical genre. These films include Wild Style, Beat Street, Krush Groove and Breakin'. The thesis argues that despite their erasure in film history, the emergence of the hip hop musical offers a compelling history of Hollywood's initial attempts to incorporate this nascent folk culture into conventional narrative forms
