  • From 700 to 1: Using Limitations to Create New Knowledge
    • Abstract: At first glance, who would imagine a connection between the quixotic Danish film director Lars von Trier’s 2003 documentary The Five Obstructions, the Food Network TV series Chopped, and production papers from the 1971 film Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory' Who would further envision these apparently unrelated productions as inspiration for teaching undergraduate students to use primary source materials and conduct original archival research' While seemingly disparate, the unifying connection between all three is the notion that specified limitations are useful. In a consumer society, the seemingly counterintuitive notion that limitations can be more beneficial than boundless choices is a powerful idea. In ... Read More

  • Teaching Media History through—and in—the Twin Cities and Its
           Archives
    • Abstract: Where is media history' If you ask this question to students outside of cities such as New York, Paris, Beijing, or Los Angeles, the answer will probably be that it is not here. This is certainly the case in the Twin Cities, where I teach: a medium-sized metro area without a major studio or festival and a distant second to Chicago in terms of its exhibition culture.Decades of scholarship, however, have reminded us that media history can (and does) unfold anywhere and that it is not just a matter of studios and festivals, famous directors, or feature films. These ideas are at the core of the graduate seminar in media historiography that I developed and often teach at the University of Minnesota. Historiography of ... Read More

  • Against Walt Disney’s Corporate Education: Walter Breckenridge’s
           Nature Films as Scientific Investigation
    • Abstract: On September 5, 1952, Ben Sharpsteen of Walt Disney Productions wrote to ornithologist Dr. Walter J. Breckenridge, director of the University of Minnesota’s Bell Museum of Natural History from 1946 to 1970. Breckenridge was well known for using photographs and films in his scientific expeditions, and Sharpsteen was interested in “obtaining 16mm Kodachrome film of [Breckenridge’s footage of] the Sandhill Crane” for use in Disney’s True-Life Adventure series.1 This series, by then in its fourth year, consisted of feature-length and short films that compiled and constructed “synthetic stories,” primarily from existing wildlife footage.2 It has been described as the most powerful contributor to the codification of ...

  • Entertainment, Art, or Education' The Emergence of Film Studies in the
           Twin Cities
    • Abstract: In the Twin Cities, the practice of regarding film as more than entertainment, viewing it critically through artistic and educational lenses, gained momentum in the mid-twentieth century. For most of the 1950s, a single man was responsible for the two Twin Cities institutions most deeply involved in film preservation and education. H. Harvard Arnason was at once chair of the University of Minnesota’s Department of Art from 1947 to 1961 and director of the Walker Art Center (WAC) from 1951 to 1961. Nevertheless, the histories of cinema at these two institutions in this period are far from similar. While both contributed to the broader shift in popular understandings of cinema (which, from the interwar period onward ... Read More

  • Making and Breaking a Queer Film in the Twin Cities
    • Abstract: On October 11, 1997, Homo Heights—alow-budget, quirky drag-gangster comedy-romance set in an all-queer universe—premiered at the Historic State Theatre in Minneapolis during the Twin Cities LGBT Film Festival. Yet despite the strong support it received from the local public and a promising run on the international film festival circuit between 1997 and 1999, the film did not achieve its self-professed cult ambitions.1 Homo Heights was never picked up for theatrical release, and though Blockbuster Video purchased it for home viewing in 2000, it quickly disappeared from the shelves due to lack of promotion. Information about the film still resides, in fragments, in cinema’s digital collective consciousness (platforms ... Read More

  • The Joy of Words: Craig Leyland on the Oxford English Dictionary’s One
           Hundred New Film Entries
    • Abstract: It appears that anything today can make headlines and go viral—even words. That happened in October 2018, when the venerable Oxford English Dictionary (OED), widely regarded as the go-to storehouse of the language, announced the addition of one hundred film and media words to its published database.The OED began in the mid-1800s as an enterprise typical of its times. Partly an arcane project initiated by an association of learned gentlemen (the Philological Society), partly a symptom of the Victorian empiricists’ urge to catalog everything and confidence in their ability to do so, and partly the reflection of growing trends that then were politicizing the language of “a people” as a source of national identity and ...

    • Abstract: Digital archives are often perceived by film archivists with some skepticism regarding the reliability and trustworthiness of digital technologies for long-term preservation (more than twenty years). Today, there is urgency to digitize our film heritage in order to give access to film to as wide an audience as possible, and short-term access is not considered a problematic practice. However, it is perceived that storing digital data on tapes is unreliable, risky, and expensive. Film archivists are operating mostly in an analog environment, and a big question mark hovers over digital-born films that do not have the guarantee of being stored in a safe, cheap, and cooled analog archive.Yet, there are people convinced ...

  • Northeast Historic Film Summer Symposium: The Political/The Personal
           (review)
    • Abstract: Northeast Historic Film (NHF), a leader in nontheatrical film preservation and a model for regional moving image archives, hosted its nineteenth annual Summer Symposium from July 19 to 21, 2018. As usual, the event benefited from the fact that it is held in NHF’s Alamo Theatre, a restored historic venue that has been expanded to include a film archives at the back of the building. As such, the presenters were able to show footage from nontheatrical film and video productions on a screen that provides a grander scale than these historic works received when originally exhibited, while the longer time slots of about forty minutes per talk allowed for more thorough analysis than would be possible at other conferences. ...

  • Film Is Like a Battleground: Sam Fuller’s War Movies by Marsha
           Gordon (review)
    • Abstract: A bedrock tenet of the auteur theory was that directors’ lifetime work eventually was an analog of their intelligence, their character, their belief system, their human essence. Therefore their oeuvres could be reverse-engineered to discover the creative being embedded within. As Marsha Gordon forcefully demonstrates, this strategy doesn’t work with Samuel Fuller. Despite the efforts to use the film work and his appearances in films as talismans of his politics and personality, at the end of the story, the “real” Sam Fuller remains enigmatic, contradictory, and impacted. Perhaps Fuller should be considered a faux-auteur. As Gordon argues, he spent forty years of his career basically making one ur-film, the one ... Read More

  • Show Trial: Hollywood, HUAC, and the Birth of the Blacklist by Thomas
           Doherty (review)
    • Abstract: Thomas Doherty’s Show Trial: Hollywood, HUAC, and the Birth of the Blacklist takes a deep dive into 1947, when the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) undertook its most public hearings on alleged Communist subversion in Hollywood. In the process, HUAC profoundly shaped our lexicon for discussing, analyzing, and remembering the postwar Red Scare and its notorious cultural counterpart, the Hollywood blacklist. In 1947, HUAC, chaired by J. Parnell Thomas, called on an extraordinary range of film industry professionals to testify, establishing the now-familiar factions of “Friendly” and “Unfriendly” witnesses. The former camp included individuals like then-actor Ronald Reagan, whose later political career ... Read More

  • Big_Sleep™ by Video Data Bank (review)
    • Abstract: Evan Meaney and Amy Szczepanski’s 2015 movie Big_Sleep™ may present itself as a “codec tutorial,” but this moving image work is far fromstraightforward.Thetwenty-six-minute-long video revolves around the demonstration of a fictitious new format (named Big_Sleep) that halts the unintended modification and corruption of digital files (often called “data rot” or “data decay”) forever. However, once encoded into Big_Sleep, the files can never be opened again. The format even has its own end user license agreement developed by Meaney and Szczepanski, and visitors to Big_Sleep’s website can upload their own files and encode them into Big_Sleep.Described by Meaney as a “desktop movie,” Big_Sleep opens with a black Mac OS ...

  • Guest Editor’s Foreword: Archives and Pedagogy
    • Abstract: This issue’s special focus on archives and pedagogy responds to a series of recent, intersecting developments in the fields of film and media studies and film and media archiving, among them the expansion of graduate programs in moving image preservation and archiving, the central role of archives to film and media history’s increasingly broad media and historical purview, the current interest in bringing production of various kinds into the “studies” classroom, and the growth of digitized collections. All of this has presented pedagogical opportunities: ways for archivists and scholars to collaborate, for scholars to reconceive how archival materials enter the classroom, and for students to engage with media and ...

  • The University Archive: Early Motion Picture Collecting in the United
           States and the Efforts to Develop the National Film Negative Library
    • Abstract: Well before the National Archives or Library of Congress began collecting motion pictures, a December 1910 article in the Olean [N.Y.]Evening Times proposed that famed itinerant lecturer and exhibitor Lyman H. Howe establish a National Film Library. The author was impressed by the positive press and enthusiastic public reception to Howe’s moving pictures of the funeral of England’s King Edward. The Evening Times’s suggestion to create a film library was also an attempt to legitimate Howe’s pictures as important historical documents worthy of long-term safekeeping. The author proclaimed, “Think of what it would be if we could see the funeral of Julius Caesar, a gladiatorial contest, the maneuvers of the Spanish ... Read More

  • Sweet Magic: The Preservation of Helen Hill’s Cinema
    • Abstract: If any good can be said to have come from this terrible loss of a glorious life, it is the immediate response to Helen Hill’s creative legacy. While we often hear of independent filmmakers whose work is lost after their death, barely two months after Helen’s funeral all of the animated films in her family’s possession were preserved. A group of archivists, filmmakers, and the ever generous Colorlab, came together to help the family preserve the works and make new prints for the many festivals and memorials craving to screen films in tribute to this great artist and light-filled person.Helen Hill’s films deserved preservation. However, numerous circumstances led to this realization. Scholars should use her work and ... Read More

  • Experimentations in Television’s Archivability: Visions of a
           Television Archive at MoMA
    • Abstract: If the record of this newest and most pervasive pulse-quickener and association-maker is to be kept, the time is now. It is already very late.The lag of time between the introduction of a new medium and the recognition of its historical, sociological, cultural, and economic significance by people with the capacity for preservation inescapably results in the loss of irrecoverable material. There were considerably long gaps of time between the emergence of the film industry as a cultural and economic force at the turn of the twentieth century, the formation of the first film archives in the mid-1930s, and the crystallization of professional archival practices and movements to secure film’s legacy in the 1970s. For ... Read More

  • Model Archives: Pedagogy’s Role in Creating Diverse,
           Multidisciplinary Archival Users
    • Abstract: The need for greater levels of access (to primary sources and for users) has become a mantra for archival organizations since the digitization boom of the mid-to late 2000s.1 The “greater access” movement’s democratic underpinnings have served as the motivation for innovations in descriptive and organizational practices, for reforming privacy and copyright restrictions,and— most often— forlarge-scale digitization projects.2 Of course, the push for access is hardly a new phenomenon; important efforts date back at least to the 1930s.3 What is new about contemporary paradigms of archival access, however, is their explicit attention to the value of diversity in archival users and uses. This is increasingly also found ... Read More

  • “Pagan Constellations in the Sky”: (Re)Animating Muybridge in
           the Film History Classroom
    • Abstract: Writing about Eadweard Muybridge’s late- nineteenth-century experiments with chrono-photography, Rebecca Solnit remarks, “If Muy-bridge was at the root, the zero point, the dawn of moving pictures, then he is everywhere as the ghost at the end of those trails of photographs rushing by, beamed across the world as television, dreamed across the world as the shared content of contemporary life, present not only as specific images but as several media.”1 Solnit is not being hyperbolic; Muybridge is indeed everywhere.2 His photographic studies of bodies in motion have intersected with everything from popular culture and debates about the origins of the cinema to questions in histories of art and science; critical ...

  • Teaching the Materiality of Film
    • Abstract: In this Forum article, we present a critical case study of the seminar Materiality of Film, which we taught at the Department of Film Studies, University of Zurich, in 2016 and 2018, in collaboration with David Landolf and Brigitte Paulowitz of Lichtspiel/Kinemathek in Bern, Switzerland. Our primary motivation to develop this course was our own fascination with the material side of analog film, an interest we developed throughout our professional lives, Bregt Lameris as a cataloger and researcher at the EYE Filmmuseum and Barbara Flueckiger as a film technician in international film production. These experiences fed into our academic work, which is characterized by an emphasis and reflection on the correlations ... Read More

  • AV Archaeology: Excavating Film in University Special Collections
    • Abstract: Archival instruction sessions at University of Arizona Special Collections (UASC) customarily have been conducted as single sessions that introduce students to UASC, describe the archive and the archival profession, and provide a brief discussion of the use of discovery tools— something akin to a show- and-tell that highlights the archive’s “greatest hits,” with impact on and measures of student learning left open-ended. Media resources rarely play a part in these sessions. Thus, when film history professor Jennifer L. Jenkins requested a semester-long partnership for a graduate-level media archaeology course, we moved beyond the traditional one-shot instructional approach toward a pedagogical framework that ...
