From Hitler to Heimat by Anton Kaes

Book Description

West German film-makers have tried repeatedly over the past half-century to come to terms with Germany's stigmatized history. How can Hitler and the Holocaust, how can the complicity and shame of the average German be narrated and visualized? How can Auschwitz be reconstructed? Anton Kaes argues that a major shift in German attitudes occurred in the mid-1970s - a shift best illustrated in films of the New German Cinema, which have focused less on guilt and atonement than on personal memory and yearning for a national identity.

Books By Author Anton Kaes

Shell Shock Cinema by Anton Kaes Shell Shock Cinema, Paperback (September 2011)

Explores how the classical German cinema of the Weimar Republic was haunted by the horrors of World War I and the devastating effects of the nation's defeat. This title exposes how German film gave expression to the loss and acute grief that lay behind Weimar's sleek facade.

Germany in Transit by Anton Kaes Germany in Transit, Paperback (March 2007)

Aims to illuminate the country's transition into a multiethnic society from the arrival of the first guest workers in the mid-1950s to the reforms in immigration and citizenship law. This book charts debates about migrant labor, human rights, multiculturalism, and globalization. It includes texts in English translation.

'M' by Anton Kaes 'M', Paperback (January 2000)

This text reconnects "M" to its significance as an event in 1931 Germany, recapturing the film's extraordinary social and symbolic energy. Interweaving close reading with cultural history, Anton Kaes reconstitutes "M" as a modernist artwork. He also analyzes Joseph Losey's 1951 film noir remake.

Promise of Cinema by Anton Kaes Promise of Cinema, Paperback (November 1999)

Features programmatic writings from the Weimar avant-garde and from directors such as Fritz Lang and F.W. Murnau. This title is suitable for students and scholars of film and media, critical theory, and European culture and history.
