Call for Submissions: Issue 100 – History of the Cinema

This issue explores the significance of the history of the cinema to its identity as an art form and entertainment and an interpretation of the past.

Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman integrates film history into the film with references to Birth of A Nation and Gone With the Windto speak of racism in the Hollywood cinema as well as contemporary racism in America. In doing so, he acknowledges the relevance of the medium’s past to the present and into the future. Like Martin Scorsese, Nicolas Winding Refn, Jean Luc Godard and others active in the preservation and promotion of film history, Lee reflects on film history and the shaping of an historical consciousness.

We welcome papers that address film history in the context of an individual film(s), a cinematic movement or a specific director or actor.
