  • Organizing Precarious Labor in Film and Media Studies: A Manifesto
    • Abstract: Contingent laborers cannot afford to perform the unpaid labor demanded of academics for work such as this.In 2019, an informal group of academic laborers were involved in performing the free labor of developing the new Precarious Labor Organization (PLO) for the Society for Cinema and Media Studies (SCMS)—labor that also goes largely unrecognized in terms of promotion and retention for contingent faculty. That August, the editor of JCMS approached the group with the offer to produce a manifesto of sorts explaining the purpose and mission of the PLO. The offer was a welcome one. It represented an opportunity to announce the mission of the new organization and a chance to further the conversation about how to ... Read More

  • The Spy Who Ought to Love Me: Se, jie and the Melodrama of Shame
           Nationalism
    • Abstract: Long live shame!—Benedict R. O'G. Anderson, 19991We have a renowned Chinese movie director, An[g] Lee, ordering the Chinese actor and actress to strip and perform explicit sex on the big screen to entertain the western audiences, begging for a foreign film award. Such pimping of Chinese movie stars to the western audience is even worse than the "comfort women" case during the Japanese invasion. Like the comfort women, the movie should bring humiliation and rage to any conscientious Chinese. . . . Some Chinese movie critics call him a "national pride" for winning foreign film awards. To me, An[g] Lee uses a national shame to further his personal career ambition. He is simply a shameless modern-day traitor to the ... Read More

  • Neither Nosferatu nor Chaplin: FEKS's Overcoat and Eccentrism's
           Protagonist
    • Abstract: The Factory of the Eccentric Actor's (FEKS) 1926 Shinel' (The Overcoat; Grigorii Kozintsev and Leonid Trauberg) is one of the more intriguing and complex projects undertaken in Soviet silent cinema.1 On the surface, it seems to have cultural masterpiece written all over it: a 1920s Soviet adaptation of Nikolai Gogol's classic short story, the film subverts the very conception of high art while playing a delicate game with the conventions of popular cinema. And yet for all its relevance to the era, FEKS's Shinel' is known mostly to aficionados of Soviet cinema and is taught more often in literature courses than in film and media studies.2 Emerging from an era of seismic cultural and political overhaul, Shinel' seems ...

  • Financialized Hollywood: Institutional Investment, Venture Capital, and
           Private Equity in the Film and Television Industry
    • Abstract: After a breakdown in negotiations with the Association of Talent Agencies on April 12, 2019, the Writers Guild of America (WGA) took the unprecedented step of instructing its members to fire their agents. More than seven thousand writers—92 percent of the guild—dutifully fired their agent. At issue was the WGA's new Code of Conduct that prohibited agents from taking packaging fees (which the WGA claims is a breach of fiduciary duty, as it incentivizes agencies to negotiate a lower fee for talent) or engaging in production (which they claim is a conflict of interest, as the agencies are again incentivized to lower fees). At the time of writing, seventy smaller agencies have signed on to the Code of Conduct. However ... Read More

  • Josey Faz: Traces of a Tejana in Chicana/o Film History
    • Abstract: I've watched her during filming when her voice sounds out, "Cut!" She'll then beam her beautiful eyes on one of the actors or actresses and make her changes or corrections quickly and effi ciently. . . . [Y]ou can see that the film pioneer, Josie Faz, is in complete control of her craft.—Arnoldo Villarreal1Born out of the civil rights movement during the late 1960s, Chicano cinema was created "by, for, and about" Chicanos, paying particular attention to issues of representation and cultural identity.2 It addresses the political and social struggles of the Chicano community, combats stereotypes, and serves as a powerful form of resistance.3 In this regard, the first three features directed by Efraín Gutiérrez during ...

  • Press Agents of Change: Early Hollywood and the "New Publicity"
    • Abstract: I feel ashamed of myself when I think that I'm in my 27th year and am no more than a press agent trailing around silly movie actors and directors and using my brains to make the public think the actors have them, writing my ideas to come forth from someone else's mouth.I don't object to doing that to earn money, even though I realize what a depraved thing it is, but I do object when it means forgetting everything I dream about doing.The more I see of that laughable section of society, the motion picture business, the great kick I get out of observing it, and the less desire to be a part of it, condemning to kissing the behinds of upstarts and piously declaring that whoever pays my salary does the greatest things in ...

    • Abstract: The year was 1951. The nominees for "Most Outstanding Personality" at the third-ever Academy of Television Arts Emmy Awards included Groucho Marx, Sid Caesar, Dick Lane, Alan Young, and Faye Emerson. Groucho Marx took home the award, and the other men's stardom continues to be honored by Hollywood. The same cannot be said for the fifth and only female nominee, Faye Emerson. In fact, her television star on Hollywood Boulevard includes a typo misspelling her name.1 Not only was she nominated for Most Outstanding Personality that year; outside of the Best Actress category, she was the only woman nominated for an Emmy across the board.2 By 1951, Faye Emerson had already been deemed the "First Lady of Television," with ...

  • Introduction
    • Abstract: The paradoxes engendered by voice on-screen are manifold. Screen voices both leverage and disrupt associations with agency, presence, immediacy, and intimacy. Concurrently, they institute artifice and distance, otherness and uncanniness. Screen voices are always, to an extent, disembodied, partial, and unstable, their technological mediation facilitating manipulation, remix, and even subterfuge. The audiovisual nature of screen media places voice in relation to—yet separate from—the image, creating gaps and connections between different sensory modes, techniques, and technologies, allowing for further disjunction and mismatch. These elusive dynamics of screen voices—whether on-screen or off-screen, in dialogue or ... Read More

  • Re-sounding Trump's Voice (My Precious)
    • Abstract: It is a particular feature of society post-gramophone that we can become intensely familiar with voices that emanate from the bodies of people we have never met. Although these people may be strangers, the sense of familiarity generated by their spoken words can be just as powerful as those spoken by a close friend. Most regular film viewers, for instance, will not fail to recognize the cadences of Morgan Freeman's voice, which has been widely recorded and disseminated, often in the visually disembodied form of a voice-over. At times, this sense of familiarity can be an irritant. Watching an animated film, for instance, we may sometimes hear a voice that we are certain we know, and we cannot rest until we are able ...

  • Remixing Actresses' Voices on the You Must Remember This Podcast
    • Abstract: With a focus on Karina Longworth's You Must Remember This (Panoply / Slate Podcasts, 2014–present) podcast series, this essay examines how this audio medium allows for the voices of female Hollywood stars to be disseminated in new ways that can reorient listeners' attention to women's verbal and vocal representations. For the past six years, Longworth has researched and shared her own interpretation of events and figures from Hollywood film history in a format that combines audio clips from films and interviews with her narration and, occasionally, vocal reenactments. Through a focus on "Jean and Jane" (a nine-part comparison of Jean Seberg and Jane Fonda from the 1950s through the 1980s), I analyze how the ... Read More

  • In Praise of the Poor Voice
    • Abstract: "If you could put a Brooks Brothers jacket and a pair of dockers [sic] on a voice, that's what we've got." This is voice actor David Cross, describing his performance of a black telemarketer's "white voice" in Boots Riley's Sorry to Bother You (2018).1 Schooled in the mores of sonic whiteness by a veteran black telemarketer, newbie agent Cassius Green (Lakeith Stanfield) crafts a voice whose place and ethnicity connote a class distinction. The conceit of Riley's film invokes the reality of accent neutralization programs commonly associated with metropolitan call centers in India, where agents are trained to switch off local and regional linguistic habits by emulating the phonological features of Euro-American ...

  • Futurs de l'obsolescence: Essai sur la restauration du film d'artiste by
           Enrico Camporesi (review)
    • Abstract: As Enrico Camporesi details in his fascinating book Futurs de l'obsolescence: Essai sur la restauration du film d'artiste (Futures of Obsolescence: An essay on the restoration of Artists' Film), each act of Restoration—broadly conceived as the ushering of a work into the future—is an act of interpretation. Take Barbara Rubin's underground classic Christmas on Earth (1963), a film I saw twice in 2018. In both instances, the film was shown as a double 16mm projection, with one image projected in reduced dimensions inside the other. Gels were manipulated live in front of the projectors' beams, intermittently bathing the monochrome film in lush color. With its close-ups of genitals and orgiastic energy, Christmas on ... Read More

  • Looking at the Stars: Black Celebrity Journalism in Jim Crow America by
           Carrie Teresa, and: Celebrity: A History of Fame by Susan J. Douglas and
           Andrea McDonnell (review)
    • Abstract: Smiling and self-consciously raking fingers through his hair, a blond boy delivers a string of platitudes into his laptop camera: "Don't let anybody's opinion stop you from chasing your dreams, OK' If you got a dream, you gotta protect it and chase it, guys. I love y'all so much. My social media is in the bio." Later, Austyn Tester will be on tour with other smiling boys, some brunet, some with shorter hair, but all delivering a similar torrent of positive pablum. Perhaps no film this year better captures the contemporary relationship between medium and celebrity than Jawline (Liza Mandelup, 2019), which tracks the manufacture of YouTube personalities and their relationship to the young fans who line up for hugs ...

  • Adaptations in the Franchise Era: 2001–16 by Kyle Meikle (review)
    • Abstract: As the 1980s drew to a close, Dudley Andrew declared, "It is time for adaptation studies to take a sociological turn."1 His call opened the way for the incorporation of literary and cultural theories such as intertextuality into adaptation studies. A few decades later, Kyle Meikle has issued a new call to adaptation studies in the franchise era, an era in which adaptations have become "characteristically diffuse and unstable."2 Meikle draws a new, extended map for adaptation studies that includes the interactive and adaptive play of touch-screen technologies, self-broadcasting, streaming platforms, porn parodies, theme parks, cosplays, and board games, to examine their relationship to Google trends (and Google's ...

  • Gaming Representation: Race, Gender, and Sexuality in Video Games ed. by
           Jennifer Malkowski and TreaAndrea M. Russworm, and: Woke Gaming: Digital
           Challenges to Oppression and Social Injustice ed. by Kishonna L. Gray and
           David J. Leonard (review)
    • Abstract: Gaming Representation and Woke Gaming are necessary books. These edited collections trace the violence of a seemingly arbitrary line that has been drawn within game studies—dividing our understanding of technology from race, gender, sexuality, ability, and other aspects of marginalized identity; insisting that the systems of power inherent to whiteness and domination are unrelated to the use, consumption, and practices embedded in technology and games.1 Both collections insightfully examine and deconstruct this rift in the field of game studies. Jennifer Malkowski and TreaAndrea M. Russworm foreground this issue in Gaming Representation: "For most of game studies' history, conversations about identity have only ... Read More

  • The Cinema of Things: Globalization and the Posthuman Object by Elizabeth
           Ezra (review)
    • Abstract: About a decade and a half ago, object-oriented ontology (OOO) and its associated methodologies (e.g., new materialism, actor-network theory, speculative realism) took the humanities by storm. Thinkers such as Graham Harman and Ian Bogost, heavily influenced by N. Katherine Hayles, Bruno Latour, Donna Haraway, and Jane Bennett, among others, plunked things right in the center of, well, things. By forcing humans to the periphery, OOO sought to denaturalize anthropocentric perspectives and create new modes of interacting with—and imagining—the world. While OOO quickly attained footing in many branches of the humanities, the philosophical school found a particular complement in film studies. Why would this be so' As ... Read More

  • The Voices of Irish Identity: A Taxonomy of Cinematic Accents
    • Abstract: The reestablishment of the Irish Film Board in 1993 sparked a rapid increase in the amount of indigenous films being produced in Ireland. This growth paralleled a significant cultural, economic, and social shift in Ireland known as the Celtic Tiger. As cultural commentators observed, this shift manifested to some degree in a change in indigenous accents.1 During this period and subsequently, accent performance began to occupy a more loaded and publicly recognized position in relation to national and class-based identity in Ireland, leading the journalist Ed Power to note in 2005 that if "our accents are integral to who we are then Ireland is suffering a collective identity crisis."2Identity politics have been a key ...

  • Subtitles as Revoicing: Film Festivals and the Globalization of Film
    • Abstract: Film festivals constitute a privileged vantage point for thinking about "the transnational dynamics of cinema."1 In screening films from all over the world, they shape film traffic and articulate particular discourses on the globalization of national cinemas.2 As cultural gatekeepers, festivals presuppose a form of cinematic knowledge organized in discrete and distinct programmatic categories; through their curatorial decisions and selections, programmers (re)order the grids of intelligibility through which we come to understand particular films. Liz Czach eloquently argues that "programmers are making powerful decisions. . . . The programming decisions amount to an argument about what defines that field, genre, or ... Read More

  • The Liberation Politics of Live Translation: Global South Cinemas in
           Soviet Tashkent
    • Abstract: When new Global South cinemas entered transnational circulation in the decolonization era, film translation became a weapon of liberation.1 In reconstructing this key role, this essay seeks to temper the current tendency in film studies to celebrate untranslatabilty in Global South cinemas. It focuses on the Festival of Asian, African, and Latin American Cinema in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, a biannual event that hosted hundreds of films and filmmakers from dozens of Global South countries between 1968 and 1988.2 At Tashkent, translators literally revoiced films via a live performance piped into the movie theater on top of the original soundtrack.3 In the Soviet "relay" system, interpreters translated films made in an ...
