With the recent release of spectacular blockbuster films from Gladiator to The Lord of the Rings trilogy, the epic has once again become a major form in contemporary cinema. This new volume in the AFI Film Readers series explores the rebirth of the epic film genre in the contemporary period, a period marked by heightened and conflicting appeals to national, ethnic, and religious belonging.The orginal essays in this volume explore the tension between the evolving global context of film production and reception and the particular provenance of the epic as an expression of national mythology and aspirations, challenging our understanding of epics produced in the present as well as our perception of epic films from the past. The contributors will explore new critical approaches to contemporary as well as older epic films, drawing on ideas from cultural studies, historiography, classics, and film studies.

The twentieth century generated tens of thousands of hours of American newsfilm but not the scholarly apparatus necessary to analyze and contextualize them. Assembling new approaches to the study of U.S. newsfilm in cinema and television, this book makes a long overdue critical intervention in the field of film and media studies by addressing the format’s inherent intermediality; its mediation of "events" for local, national, and transnational communities; its distinctive archival legacies; and, consequently, its integral place in film and television studies more broadly. This collection brings fresh, contemporary methodologies and analysis to bear on a vast amount of material that has languished in relative obscurity for far too long.

With the success of Martin Scorsese’s Hugo (2011) and Michel Hazanavicius’s The Artist (2011) nothing seems more contemporary in recent film than the styles, forms, and histories of early and silent cinemas. This collection considers the latest return to silent film alongside the larger historical field of visual repetitions and affective currents that wind their way through 20th and 21st century visual cultures. Contributors bring together several fields of research, including early and silent cinema studies, experimental and new media, historiography and archive theory, and studies of media ontology and epistemology. Chapters link the methods, concerns, and concepts of early and silent film studies as they have flourished over the last quarter century to the most recent developments in digital culture—from YouTube to 3D—recasting this contemporary phenomenon in popular culture and new media against key debates and concepts in silent film scholarship. An interview with acclaimed Canadian filmmaker Guy Maddin closes out the collection.

In the aftermath of the Holocaust, the Rodney King beating, the O.J. Simpson trial, what is to count as history, and how can it be recounted? This is an anthology of essays from major film scholars and historians which focuses on a radical contemporary challenge to historical representation in film. This challenge is brought about by what the collection terms the modernist event - novel historical occurrences unthinkable before the 20th century and raised to visibility, if not intelligibility, through the mass mediations of film and television. Contributors look at how the moving image has not only challenged, but completely altered, traditional modes of historical thought and representation. Exploring a range of film and video texts, from The Ten Commandments to the Rodney King video, from the projected work of documentarian Errol Morris to Oliver Stone's JFK and Steven Spielberg's Schindler's List, this volume asks what are the appropriate forms of media for making the incoherence and fragmentation of contemporary history intelligible and meaningful?

Willkommen im Club der Guernseyer Freunde von Dichtung und Kartfoffelschalenauflauf London, Ende der vierziger Jahre: Die junge Schriftstellerin Juliet erhält einen ungewöhnlichen Brief. Absender ist Dawsey Adams, ein Bauer von der Kanalinsel Guernsey, der antiquarisch ein Buch erworben hat, das zuvor ihr gehörte. Zwischen den beiden entspinnt sich ein Briefwechsel, durch den Juliet von der Existenz der »Guernseyer Freunde von Dichtung und Kartoffelschalenauflauf« erfährt, einer literarischen Gesellschaft, die einige der Inselbewohner gründeten, um sich über die schwere Kriegszeit hinwegzuhelfen. Je mehr Juliet über Dawsey und die anderen erfährt, desto mehr wünscht sie sich diese Menschen zu treffen. Und so beschließt sie, auf die Insel zu reisen. Dort stößt Juliet auf die Geschichte von Elizabeth, einem verschollenen Mitglied des Clubs, und ihrer großen Liebe zu einem deutschen Offizier. Und sie lernt Dawsey immer besser kennen...
