Explorations in Film Theory - Selected Essays from Cine-Tracts

Author(s): Ron Burnett (Editor)


Explorations in Film Theory is a selection of some of the most influential articles which originally appeared in Ciné-Tracts--one of the journals which helped define contemporary film theory. The articles represent crucial ideas and theories in the areas of film and communications studies, feminist studies, and film history. They challenge the way theoreticians and filmmakers have not come to grips with sexual difference, and they raise questions about image and how images produce meaning. Bertolt Brecht, Walter Benjamin, Dziga-Vertov, pornography, educational television, and the New German Cinema of the 1970s are some of the topics covered.
