THE FILM - A SEVEN MINUTE EXTRACT FROM FOUR HOURS OF INTERVIEWS
Critical Cinema: Beyond the Theory of Practice is a book on cinema edited by Clive Myer and published by Wallflower through Columbia University Press in 2012.
It purges the obstructive line between the making of and the theorising on film, uniting theory and practice in order to move beyond the commercial confines of Hollywood.
Opening with an introduction by Bill Nichols, one of the world's leading writers on nonfiction film, this volume features contributions by such prominent authors as Noel Burch, Laura Mulvey, Peter Wollen, Brian Winston and Patrick Fuery, Nico Baumbaum, Aparna Sharma, Ian Macdonald, Coral Houtman and Clive Myer.
Seminal filmmakers such as Peter Greenway and Mike Figgis also contribute to the debate, making this book a critical text for students, academics, and independent filmmakers as well as for any reader interested in new perspectives on culture and film.
