9780809325566: Film and Television After 9/11

In Film and Television After 9/11, editor Wheeler Winston Dixon and eleven other distinguished film scholars discuss the production, reception, and distribution of Hollywood and foreign films after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, and examine how moviemaking has changed to reflect the new world climate.

 

While some contemporary films offer escapism, much of mainstream American cinema since 9/11 is centered on the desire for a just war” in which military reprisals and escalation of warfare appear to be both inevitable and justified. Films of 2002 such as Black Hawk Down, Collateral Damage, and We Were Soldiers demonstrate a renewed audience appetite for narratives of conflict, reminiscent of the wave of filmmaking that surrounded American involvement in World War II.

 

The attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon galvanized the American public initially, yet film critics wonder how this will play out over time. Film and Television After 9/11 is the first book to provide original insights into topics ranging from the international reception of post-9/11 American cinema, re-viewing films of our shared cinematic past in light of the attacks, and exploring parallels between post-9/11 cinema and World War II-era productions.

Review:

[A] vital anthology. . . . Uniformly excellent, the informed, closely argued, and clearly written essays collected here demonstrate how popular films reflect not just the open issues of their day but its sunken anxieties. . . . Essential [for] all levels.”

Choice



Film and Television After 9/11 contributes to a new understanding both of recent American film and our reaction, as a culture, to the events of 9/11. The contributors consider the question of how these very real events were at the same time media spectacles subject to deliberate reconstruction and ideological slanting, and how this spectacle resonated throughout American culture.”

Steven Shaviro, author of The Cinematic Body and Doom Patrols



No one book, no one movie has ever been able to capture the Holocaust, World War I, World War II, Vietnam, or even such small’ events as the Hindenburg explosion or the Lindbergh kidnapping. The same will be true of the events of 9/11. The collection of essays in Film and Television After 9/11, however, presents a series of important reflections about the events surrounding that day. By focusing on two television programs and films in process prior to the event, the authors of these essays present us with ways in’ to the horrors of the catastrophic event, aspects of its aftermath, and, maybe, most important, readings of our culture that presage and comment on not only the event but threads woven into the fabric of our culture.” Gerald Duchovnay, author of Humphrey Bogart: A Bio-Bibliography

Descrizione libro Southern Illinois University Press, United States, 2004. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. 3rd Revised edition. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. In Film and Television after 9/11, twelve distinguished scholars and critics discuss the production, reception, and distribution of Hollywood and foreign films after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, and examine how movies have changed to reflect the new world climate. While some contemporary films offer escapism, the bulk of mainstream American cinema since 9/11 seems centered on the desire to replicate the idea of the just war, in which military reprisals and escalation of warfare appear to be both inevitable and justified. Films such as Black Hawk Down, Collateral Damage, and We Were Soldiers reflect a renewed audience appetite for narratives of conflict, reminiscent of the wave of filmmaking that surrounded American involvement in World War II. The attacks on the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon in Washington have galvanized the American public into a call for action and film critics wonder how this will play out in the months and years to come. How will American films shape the perspectives of other nations? What sort of dialogue do post-9/11 films establish? How do we now re-view the films of our shared cinematic past in light of these recent events? And are we about to replay the events of the 1940s and 1950s, albeit in a hyperstylized, MTV edited format? With an introduction by editor Wheeler Winston Dixon and original essays by leading cinema scholars, Film and Television after 9/11 is the first book to offer critical insights to these and other concerns.
