Riassunto:

Most Canadians are city dwellers, a fact often unacknowledged by twentieth-century Canadian films, with their preference for themes of wilderness survival or rural life. Modernist Canadian films tend to support what film scholar Jim Leach calls "the nationalist-realist project," a documentary style that emphasizes the exoticism and mythos of the land. Over the past several decades, however, the hegemony of Anglo-centrism has been challenged by francophone and First Nations perspectives and the character of cities altered by a continued influx of immigrants and the development of cities as economic and technological centers. Examining fourteen Canadian films produced from 1989 to 2007,Film and the City is the first comprehensive study of Canadian film and "urbanity" - the totality of urban culture and life. Melnyk considers how filmmakers, films, and urban audiences experience, represent, and interpret urban spatiality, visuality, and orality. In this way, Film and the City argues that Canadian narrative film of the postmodern period has aided in articulating a new national identity.

Descrizione libro Au Press, Canada, 2014. Paperback. Condizione: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book. For many years, Canadian cinema was dominated by the documentary tradition of the National Film Board, which tended to promote what film scholar Jim Leach has called the nationalist-realist project -films that privileged Canada s natural landscape and sought to conjure a unified sense of Canadian identity from images of empty, untrammelled wilderness and bucolic farmlands. Over the past several decades, however, the hegemony of this fundamentally colonial, Anglo-centric vision has been challenged by francophone and First Nations perspectives and by the growth of cities, where most Canadians now reside, as economic and technological centres. In opposition to the mythic Canada shaped through the lens of rural nostalgia, Canadian urban identity asserts itself as polyphonic, diverse, constructed through multiple discourses and mediums, as an ongoing negotiation rather than a monolithic orientation. Taking the urban as setting and subject, filmmakers are ideally poised to capture this multiplicity, creating their own, idiosyncratic portraits of the Canadian urban landscape and of the people who inhabit it. Examining fourteen Canadian films produced from the late 1980s onward, including Denys Arcand s Jesus de Montreal (1989), Mina Shum s Double Happiness (1994), and Guy Maddin s My Winnipeg (2007), Film and the City is the first comprehensive study of Canadian film and urbanity -the totality of urban culture and life as refracted through the filmmaker s prism. Drawing on insights from both film and urban studies and building upon issues of identity formation long debated in Canadian studies, Melnyk considers how filmmakers interpret and employ the spatiality, visuality, and orality of urban space and how audiences read the films that result. In this way, Film and the City argues that Canadian narrative film of the postmodern period has contributed to the articulation of a new, multifaceted understanding of national identity.
