Picturing ourselves : photography & autobiography by Linda Haverty Rugg( )

21 editions published between 1997 and 2007 in English and held by 2,350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Yet Benjamin used them in his photographic conception of history, and Wolf's narrator in Patterns of Childhood tries to reclaim her childhood from the Nazis by reconstructing mental images of lost family photographs. Confronted with multiple and conflicting images of themselves, all four of these writers are torn between the knowledge that texts, photographs, and indeed selves are haunted by undecidability and the desire for the returned glance of a single self
Self-projection : the director's image in art cinema by Linda Haverty Rugg( )

10 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 875 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1957, a decade before Roland Barthes announced the death of the author, François Truffaut called for a new era in which films would “resemble the person who made” them and be “even more personal” than an autobiographical novel. More than five decades on, it seems that Barthes has won the argument when it comes to most film critics. The cinematic author, we are told, has been dead for a long time. Yet Linda Haverty Rugg contends not only that the art cinema auteur never died, but that the films of some of the most important auteurs are intensely, if complexly, related to the lives and self-images of their directors. Self-Projection explores how nondocumentary narrative art films create alternative forms of collaborative self-representation and selfhood. The book examines the work of celebrated directors who plant autobiographical traces in their films, including Truffaut, Bergman, Fellini, Tarkovsky, Herzog, Allen, Almodóvar, and von Trier. It is not simply that these directors, and many others like them, make autobiographical references or occasionally appear in their films, but that they tie their films to their life stories and communicate that link to their audiences. Projecting a new kind of selfhood, these directors encourage identifications between themselves and their work even as they disavow such connections. And because of the collaborative and technological nature of filmmaking, the director’s self-projection involves actors, audience, and the machines and institution of the cinema as well. Lively and accessible, Self-Projection sheds new light on the films of these iconic directors and on art cinema in general, ultimately showing how film can transform not only the autobiographical act but what it means to have a self.0
A history of bombing by Sven Lindqvist( Book )

8 editions published between 2000 and 2012 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The bomb shatters history into hundreds of fragments scattered throughout time in this new book from Sven Lindqvist, author of "Exterminate All the Brutes." Divided into 399 sections with 22 "entrances," or thematic ways of approaching the book, The History of Bombing moves the reader backward and forward in time, traveling from section to section as it builds a critical history of violence. Primarily concerned with civilian experiences during wartime, Lindqvist utilizes military history, pulp literature, and an analysis of international law in its capacity to mitigate wartime harms inflicted on civilians. Forming a labyrinth of events that illustrates the genocidal fantasies underlying so much conflict and the devastation wrought by aerial bombing, A History of Bombing links the total war of World War II, the Korean War, and Vietnam War with centuries-past colonial warfare."--Jacket

1 edition published in 2005 in Multiple languages and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lo perverso de la construcción de una identidad mediante la recolección y clasificación de casos, unas veces, o el necesario proceso terapéutico de reconstrucción de la identidad fragmentada por el trauma, otras; la representación y su poder para construir puntos de vista sobre la realidad, ordenándola, controlándola y conformándola de acuerdo a la poética y la política dominantes en cada momento; la facilidad con la que el documento adquiere aura y esconde tras ella su utilidad original; el análisis de la gestión rivada de la imagen fotográfica y documentación propias como forma de estudio de diferentes actuaciones humanas; el registro de lo nuevo como paso necesario para consagrar una obra o invención como genial y única, sea cual sea el entorno de la modernidad en que se desarrolla; la tensión a la hora de observar e identificar prácticas artísticas en registros, imágenes, acumulaciones y colecciones que no fueron concebidas como arte; la forma en que el modelo del investigador y el archivero se ha filtrado en prácticas artísticas que no pueden ser sino reflejo de su propia época."

The fifth act by Ingmar Bergman( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Award-winning film director Ingmar Bergman's scripts are among the most important documents in film history. Though his vision in such films as Wild Strawberries and The Seventh Seal has shaped our thinking about the cinema, the vast majority of his most powerful recent work only slowly finds its way to American theaters. The Fifth Act brings to English readers for the first time some of the finest creations of Bergman's mature years. In these scenarios of extraordinary frankness, even rawness, Bergman shows his tender yet realistic views on the world of theater, cinema, and acting, culminating with In the Presence of a Clown, where he returns to the character of his Uncle Carl, an irrepressible inventor who comes up with an early version of the talking film. These most recent scripts, in effect Bergman's own fifth act, add an important and moving chapter to his life work. A preface contextualizing the scripts within Bergman's oeuvre has been added by Lasse Bergstrom, a noted Swedish film critic as well as the publisher of Bergman's work in Sweden. Born in 1918, Ingmar Bergman is considered to be one of the great creators of the modern cinema and he is responsible for more than forty films. Bergman has been nominated for nine Oscars, and has won numerous other awards. The remarkable, final filmscripts of acclaimed director Ingmar Bergman, available in English for the first time
