Inverted narratives : new directions in storytelling by Bruce Charles Posner( Visual )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Early directors D.W. Griffith and Lois Weber develop the radical language of cinema narrative through audience-friendly melodramas made for nickelodeon theatres. Experimental fantasies are depicted in such independent productions as Moonland (c. 1926), Lullaby (1929) and The bridge (1929-30). Depression-era films by socially conscious filmmakers reshape drama as demonstrated in Josef Berne's brooding Black dawn (1933) and Strand and Hurwitz's biting Native land (1937-41): each picture a raw reality. Pardy and satire find their mark in Theodore Huff's Little geezer (1932) and Barlow, Hay and Le Roy's Even as you and I (1937). David Bradley's Sredni Vashtar by Saki (1940-43) boasts an inadvertent post-modern attitude

Viva la dance : the beginnings of ciné-dance( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dance and film have shared the aspiration to creatively sculpt motion and time. Some of the first films ever made featured Annabelle's skirt dance, hand-painted in glowing colours. Isadora Duncan and Ruth St Denis' innovations found their way into Diana the huntress (1916) and The soul of the cypress (1920). Highly cinematic renditions of dance evolved in Stella Simon's Hände (1928), Hector Hoppin's La joie de vivre (1934) and Busby Berkeley's "Don't say goodnight" from Wonder Bar (1934). In counterpoint, ciné-dance experiments by Ralph Steiner, Mary Ellen Bute, Oskar Fischinger, Douglass Crockwell, Slavko Vorkapich and Norman McLaren dispensed with actual dancers in favour of colour, shape, line and form choreographed into abstract light-play

The background against which the experimentalists toiled provides a fascinating review of Americana coupled with numerous cross-currents, successes and failures, and an unfailing desire to create on film an image that can be viewed as an independent and provocative art
