THE ESSAY FILM: DIALOGUE, POLITICS, UTOPIA. Ed. by Caroline Eades and Elizabeth Papazian. Wallflower Press, Columbia University Press, New York, 2016. Nonfictions. 216 pp. with 24 ills. 22 x 15 cm. ISBN 9780231176941 In English.
Paperbound edition also available; see Worldwide 173898. Publisher's description: With its increasing presence in a continuously evolving media environment, the essay film as a visual form raises new questions about the construction of the subject, its relationship to the world, and the aesthetic possibilities of cinema. In this volume, authors specializing in various national cinemas (Cuban, French, German, Israeli, Italian, Lebanese, Polish, Russian, American) and critical approaches (historical, aesthetic, postcolonial, feminist, philosophical) explore the essay film and its consequences for the theory of cinema while building on and challenging existing theories. Taking as a guiding principle the essay form's dialogic, fluid nature, the volume examines the potential of the essayistic to question, investigate, and reflect on all forms of cinema -- fiction film, popular cinema, and documentary, video installation, and digital essay.
