Inside the historical film by Bruno Ramirez( )

2 editions published in 2014 in French and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From cinema's beginnings filmmakers have turned to the past for their stories, so much so that in many ways our historical culture is shaped more in the movie theatre than in the classroom. Inside the Historical Film argues how and why film can enrich our understanding of the past. Bruno Ramirez discusses a wide range of films, from various historical and national contexts, pointing to the role that film-crafts play in translating historical events into cinematic language. He takes the reader through the process of conception, research, design, and production of several films that he researched and co-wrote, explaining the decisions that were made to best convey historical knowledge. The practice-based quality at the core of Ramirez's analysis is further enhanced by conversations with world-renowned film directors, including Denys Arcand, Constantin Costa-Gavras, Deepa Mehta, Renzo Rossellini, Paolo and Vittorio Taviani, and Margarethe von Trotta. Grounded in an appreciation for the interpretative value of making films and cinema's ability to reach large public audiences at personal and emotional levels, Inside the Historical Film seeks to understand historical films as both creative works and multi-layered representations of the past

Bombay, 1947. Allo scoccare della mezzanotte, nell'anno in cui veniva dichiarata l'indipendenza dell'India dall'Inghilterra, nasce Shiva, figlio di una coppia benestante. Ma in ospedale un'infermiera decide di scambiare il bambino con un altro neonato, Saleem, anch'egli nato esattamente a mezzanotte, ma figlio di un mendicante della casta più umile. L'infermiera è convinta di compiere così un atto di giustizia sociale, in realtà darà solo luogo ad una catena infinita di equivoci e tragedie. E il destino dei "figli della mezzanotte" si dipanerà attraverso i decenni in parallelo con quello dell'India, diventandone metafora. (Mymovies)
