French Cinema Since 1950 by Emma Wilson

Book Description

Providing a modern introduction to French cinema, this book describes the French passion for histories in images that gave birth to the 'Nouvelle Vague' and which is still felt today. The post-war period is the first time French directors think consciously of the idea of cinema in the first person, offering a personal vision and embodying a personal style. Yet this personal vision is also the filter through which films focus on public history, mass events and massive trauma.

Books By Author Emma Wilson

Lucidity: Essays in Honour of Alison Finch by Emma Wilson Lucidity: Essays in Honour of Alison Finch, Hardback (February 2016)

Addresses the question of lucidity as a thematic in literature and film but also as a quality of both expression and insight in literary criticism and critical thought more generally. This book features essays that offer treatments of lucidity in itself and in relation to its opposites, forms of obscurity and darkness.

Love, Mortality and the Moving Image by Emma Wilson Love, Mortality and the Moving Image, Hardback (February 2012)

In their use of home movies, collages of photographs and live footage, moving image artists explore the wish to see dead loved ones living. This study closely explores emotions and sensations surrounding mortality and longing, with new readings of works by Agnes Varda, Pedro Almodovar, Ingmar Bergman, Sophie Calle, and many others.

Cambridge History of French Literature by Emma Wilson Cambridge History of French Literature, Hardback (February 2011)

The most comprehensive history of literature written in French ever produced in English.

Alain Resnais by Emma Wilson Alain Resnais, Paperback (October 2009)

Alain Resnais, director of "Hiroshima mon amour" (1959) and "L'Annee derniere a Marienbad" (1961), has transformed the representation of memory, fantasy and desire in modern cinema. This title presents an introduction to his work that traces the evolving patterns of his filmmaking, its reflections on mortality, guilt, chance and human doubt.
