This is the first book to survey the entire career of Joris Ivens, a prolific documentary filmmaker who worked on every continent over the course of seven decades.

Audiovisions: Cinema and Television as Entr'actes in History (Amsterdam University Press - Film Culture in Transition)

Audiovisions: Cinema and Television as Entr'actes in History (Amsterdam University Press - Film Culture in Transition) by Siegfried Zielinski
English | June 1, 1999 | ISBN: 9053563032 | 357 Pages | PDF | 57 MB

The production, distribution, and perception of moving images are undergoing a radical transformation. Ever-faster computers, digital technology, and microelectronic are joining forces to produce advanced audiovision -the media vanishing point of the 20th century. Very little will remain unchanged.
The classic institutions for the mediation of film - cinema and television - are revealed to be no more than interludes in the broader history of the audiovisual media. This book interprets these changes not simply as a cultural loss but also as a challenge: the new audiovisions have to be confronted squarely to make strategic intervention possible.

Playing the Waves: Lars von Trier's Game Cinema (Film Culture in Transition)

Playing the Waves: Lars von Trier's Game Cinema (Film Culture in Transition) by Jan Simons
English | Sep. 15, 2007 | ISBN: 905356991X | 256 Pages | PDF | 2 MB

Dogma 95, the avant-garde filmmaking movement founded by the Danish director Lars von Trier and three of his fellow directors, was launched in 1995 at an elite cinema conference in Paris—when von Trier was called upon to speak about the future of film but instead showered the audience with pamphlets announcing the new movement and its manifesto. A refreshingly original critical commentary on the director and his practice, Playing the Waves is a paramount addition to one of new media’s most provocative genres: games and gaming.
