  3. 3. Figures of time : on the phenomenology of cinema and temporality

    Author : Malin Wahlberg; Michael Renov; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; film theory; phenomenology; aesthetic theory; temporality; duration; speed; photography; city film; documentary; experimental cinema; Film; Filmvetenskap; Cinema Studies; filmvetenskap;

    Abstract : Image and time represent a favored issue among theorists and practitioners in the history of cinema, where discussion is related to the ingenious machine, the new art, as well as the experience of film. Looking back on this debate, and considering recent accounts of 'time-images,' it is striking to note how the problem has always oscillated between issues of the medium specific and issues of film experience; that is, the ontology of cinema as a time-bound medium, the quality of rhythm, duration, and recorded views, and, not least, the sensory and affective impact of mediated sound-images.

    Abstract : Since the inception of cinema, an important strand of the medium has focused on itself, on what it depicts, and its indexical relation to the profilmic. Such concerns were most conspicuously put forward by the trick-film genre which bypassed conventional realism in its toying with the photographic image as well as cinematic movement. READ MORE

    Abstract : This dissertation examines the coming of sound film in Sweden during the years 1928–1932, and the reception of mechanically recorded sounds both in the trade press and among audiences. The novelty of sound film opened up for a negotiation of the perception of sound and image, as it made visible the film medium’s technological construction, before this visibility was once more absorbed by the cinematic discourse.
