Subtitles : on the foreignness of film ( Book )
15 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 403 libraries worldwide
"The essays, interviews, and visuals include a collaboration by Russell Banks and Atom Egoyan, which uses quotations from Banks's novel The Sweet Hereafter as substitutes for publicity stills from Egoyan's film of the book; three early film reviews by Jorge Luis Borges; an interview with filmmaker Claire Denis about a scene in her film Friday Night that should not have been subtitled; and Eric Cozdyn's reading of the running subtitles on CNN's post-9/11 newscasts as a representation of new global realities. Several writers deal with translating cultural experience for an international audience, including Fredric Jameson on Balkan cinema, John Mowitt on the history of the "foreign film" category on the Academy Awards, and Ruby Rich on the marketing of foreign films and their foreign languages - "Somehow, I'd like to to think it's harder to kill people when you hear their voices," she writes. And Slavoj Zizek considers the "foreign gaze" (seen in films by Hitchcock, Lynch, and others), the misperception that sees too much."--Jacket
