Cinematic Howling PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Cinematic Howling free pdf Feminist film theory has flourished since the 1970s, but faces a double impasse. First, feminist film theory is flooded with terminology comprehensible to few readers. Second, these theories risk reinforcing the classic canon by analyzing it repeatedly. "Cinematic Howling" shows how studying women's filmmaking is more effective than criticizing mainstream movies from feminist perspectives.Hoi F. Cheu analyzes films and screenplays by women to consider how women theorize the process and function of storytelling in cinema. Across several close readings of screenplays and films, Cheu draws on systems theory, feminist theory, and film theory to develop a therapeutic framework that interprets these films not merely as reflections of women's experiences, but as storytelling acts with the power to reframe experiences and, consequently, to transform life.A major contribution to feminist scholarship that will appeal to scholars of both gender and film, "Cinematic Howling" is written in an approachable and inviting style, full of vivid examples and attention to detail, which will suit both undergraduate and graduate courses in gender, film, and cultural studies.
