  • Editorial
    • Abstract: This double volume, Framework 58 1 & 2, houses a collection of essays and interviews that looks at issues that may seem peripheral but, in fact, are shown to have a dynamic place in culture. The opening essay, Rosalind Galt’s “The Animal Logic of Contemporary Greek Cinema,” argues that the use of animals, either real or enacted, in a number of current Greek films reflects, as she describes it, “subjectivity, power, and social relations.” In many ways the separate parts of Framework 58 look at culture in the same light. French cinema’s active “margins” are discussed in electrifying detail, in the dossier French Cinema at the Margins: Forgotten Sites, Practices, and Discourses, 1920–1960, guest edited by Eric ...

  • The Animal Logic of Contemporary Greek Cinema
    • Abstract: The recent wave of Greek cinema—often rather problematically named the “weird wave”—returns insistently to non-human animals. Athina Rachel Tsangari’s Attenberg (GR, 2010) features characters who copy the movements and sounds of wild creatures from the television nature programs of British naturalist David Attenborough, and Greek goats feature prominently in her short film The Capsule (GR, 2012). In Yorgos Lanthimos’s Kynodontas/Dogtooth (GR, 2010), dogs and cats play a small but crucial narrative role, and his recent film The Lobster (GR/IE/NL/GB/FR, 2015) imagines a social order in which those who fail to maintain normative sexual relations are turned into animals. Animality is a key way in which these ... Read More

  • Introduction: French Cinema at the Margins
    • Abstract: Let’s begin with two issues of Pour Vous. On 12 October 1933, as it would every week during its twelve years of publication, from 1928 until the surrender to Germany in June 1940, this French film weekly published a complete list of the cinemas in Paris and all of the movies they were showing. About a year earlier, on 7 July 1932, as it did occasionally, Pour Vous ran a column “On screens in the four corners of France” (“Sur les écrans des quatre coins de la France”), detailing all of the movies opening in Lille, Marseille, Dijon, and elsewhere in the nation, and including at least some of France’s North African colonies, in this case, Algeria and Morocco.1 These two issues of one of the period’s major film ...

  • Cinephiles, Criminals, and Children: Discourses and Practices of Cinema
           Education in 1920s Paris
    • Abstract: In the June 2014 report “For a European Film Education Policy,” commissioned by head of the Centre National du Cinéma (CNC), Frédérique Bredin, Xavier Lardoux stressed the need to bring schoolchildren into cinemas, “a sacred space where others have gone before us, and have experienced moments of intense feeling, drama or joy,” so that they might “discover works of cinematic art” and thus create “Europe’s film-loving cinema-goer of the future.”1 The following year Lardoux, by then head of film at the CNC, shared the results of his report at the Cinémathèque Française for the launch of the MEDIA funded program “A Framework for Film Education in Europe,” headed by the British Film Institute (BFI). The program ... Read More

  • Toward a History of French Ecocinema: Nature in Dimitri Kirsanoff’s
           Modernity
    • Abstract: “We need to imagine the future, to dream it, before implementing it. And to achieve this, nothing is more powerful than cinema.”1 So propose Cyril Dion and Mélanie Laurent in the crowdfunding pitch for their box office hit documentary Demain/Tomorrow (FR, 2015).2 Selling environmentalist cinema as technoutopianism, Dion and Laurent insist that the solution to today’s environmental problems is another modernity, a “Third Industrial Revolution.”3 It’s an enticing idea that rests upon the too often unquestioned assumption that technology, despite being the very source of so many environmental problems, still remains the best solution.4 This paradox has a film-specific variant, one that goes beyond the widely ...

On June 14, 1930, before the members of the Spectateurs d’Avant-Garde ciné-club, Jean Vigo delivered a lecture famously calling for a renewal in filmmaking he described as “social cinema.”1 Pronounced before the second screening of his critical documentary A Propos de Nice (FR, 1930),Vigo sought neither to magically “unveil” (révéler) this new category to his audience nor to “suffocate” the term with too much formulation.2 Rather, he strived to activate an understanding of social cinema by casting its central aims within a two-fold relational structure. First, he underscored the spectator’s own ... Read More

  • “To Show the People in Paris How We Live Here”: Working-Class
           Representation, Paul Carpita, and Film History
    • Abstract: French and Anglo-American film historians usually stress the “idea of continuity” that dominated French cinema after World War II.1 Susan Hayward claims that “the look of France’s cinema did not change considerably” after the war, and Alan Williams suggests that the foundation of institutions such as the CNC (Centre National de la Cinématographie) helped nurture “the strong artistic continuity between the new French school of the Occupation and the postwar Tradition of Quality.”2 During the war, when the German company Continental made films in Paris, production in the South had become more important, at least before the occupation of the Southern zone in 1942. Many film professionals found themselves in ... Read More

  • “The Last Amateurs of Pure Cinema”: Ciné-Clubs and French Film
           Culture, 1930–1945
    • Abstract: During the 1930s, André de Fouquières wrote a column as the resident bon vivant and man about town for La Semaine à Paris, a weekly listing and description of all of the cultural events going on in Paris from Friday to the following Thursday. He arranged possible activities—going to concerts, museums, lectures—day by day, and as much as possible he staggered events by time, indicating that those so inclined might go from one to the other. He rarely included anything about the movies playing at regular cinemas, but he paid careful attention to the ciné-clubs. In the edition of 12 April 1935, de Fouquières wrote that on Friday, one might take in the opening of the Goya Exposition at the Bibliothèque nationale ... Read More

  • Star Gazing via Documentary
    • Abstract: This essay represents a preliminary attempt to explore a productive relationship between stardom (studies) and documentary (studies). To this effect, I analyze the first and second part of the documentary film The Inner/Outer World of Shah Rukh Khan1 (UK/IN, 2005) made by London based television producer, documentary filmmaker, and author Nasreen Munni Kabir and her longtime associate, the British cinematographer, Peter Chappell. The first part, The Inner World, was produced by Kabir’s London-based film production house, “Hyphen Films,” for BBC’s Channel 4. The second part, The Outer World, did not find financial backing with Channel 4 and was produced by Shah Rukh Khan’s (henceforth, SRK) Bombay-based media ... Read More

  • Introduction
    • Abstract: On April 14, 2017, the San Francisco International Film Festival honored Shah Rukh Khan in an exclusive ceremony with this hyperbolic introduction: “To muster an American equivalent to Shah Rukh Khan, you’d have to combine several high-wattage celebrities (Brad Pitt plus Tom Cruise plus Will Smith), and it still wouldn’t be enough. Khan—or ‘SRK’ to his fans—is not only one of India’s biggest-ever stars, his fame has transcended borders and brought him worldwide acclaim.”1 Preempting the San Francisco honor, The Los Angeles Times issued a similar imperative when it did a story on Shah Rukh Khan as “the biggest movie star you’ve never heard of.”2 Other examples provide more than ample evidence of Khan’s global ...

  • Fan and its Paratexts
    • Abstract: This essay examines the role of paratexts and their relationship with film, specifically, and cinema, more generally. My point of entry into this discussion is Fan (Maneesh Sharma, IN, 2016), a big-budget, Yash Raj Films (YRF) production whose promotion and publicity matched and, at times, rivaled its unconventional narrative. My investigation of these paratexts seeks to expand our understanding of stardom, fandom, authorship, as well as Bombay cinema’s industrial practices. I begin this task by offering my sample chronology of Fan’s paratexts that shows film is no longer the primary or privileged text via which a fan can interact with and track her favorite star. As with many blockbusters productions, film ... Read More

  • Embodiment and Stardom in Shahrukh Khan’s Fan
    • Abstract: Fan belongs in the familiar genre of films about obsessive fans, ranging from the naïve to the deranged, but it ends up defamiliarizing both the genre of such films and the star Shahrukh Khan, first by having the star play both fan and star, and second by both extending and playing against the actor’s current star persona as developed over the past two decades in a number of media sites. Dispersed across media and live platforms, contemporary arenas for star and fan interaction, in the case of Shahrukh Khan, range from twitter to sightings “in the flesh” in front of his house, which the film also incorporates. Although at one level the film might be considered a narcissistic take on his own stardom by a ... Read More

  • Doubling Offscreen and Onscreen: Queering the Star and the Fan in Fan
    • Abstract: At the climax of Maneesh Sharma’s film Fan (IN, 2016), an obsessive, deranged fan chases a Bollywood megastar onto a rooftop, and the megastar pleads, “Be a good son to your parents—a good friend, a good boyfriend. Stop being a fan!” But the fan refuses to let go of his obsession with the star, and in doing so, he rejects heteronormativity as he plummets to his death. The relationship between the star and the fan necessarily distances the idol from his admirer, a relationship that S.V. Srinivas has defined as the fans’ “surplus investment” in their stars’ performances.1 Fan portrays the collapse of that distance between the fan and star in multiple ways—as the obsessed fan pursues his star, the double ...

  • The Mirror of Desire: Queerness, Fan, and the Riddles of Paheli
    • Abstract: The recent, and much publicized, release of Yashraj Films’ Fan (Maneesh Sharma, IN, 2016) offers an apposite occasion to reconsider the double role in popular Hindi cinema. While the double has been a staple feature of Indian popular cinemas for melodramatic as well as figurative reasons from its earliest years, it is important to note that only a certain scale of stardom lends itself to the notion of the doppelgänger, as evidenced by the actors who have played these roles: Dilip Kumar, Nargis, Hema Malini, Amitabh Bachchan, Sridevi, and more recently, of course, Shah Rukh Khan.2 Additionally, the double or dual role is also subject to considerable variation in the popular film: for example, while certain films ...

  • Double Trouble: SRK, Fandom, and Special Effects
    • Abstract: Fan is a finely stylized site of technological and affective innovation that rewrites SRK as a star-text. A film whose theme is one of the most beloved in Bombay Cinema—the fan’s adoration of the star—Fan is premised on a casting coup that plays off an aging, narcissistic SRK against his much younger and far more resourceful look-alike. A highly mediated, fantastic reworking of Shah Rukh Khan’s previous double roles that crystallize with Karan Arjun (Rakesh Roshan, IN, 1995) and continue into Ra-One (Abhinav Gupta, IN, 2011), Fan departs visibly from the trope of family likeness. The family has been used to naturalize the double in Bombay cinema for years—a convention ably suited to express kinship as one of ... Read More

  • Interview with Manu Anand, Director of Photography of Fan
    • Abstract: Manu Anand graduated from the Mass Communication Research Center at Jamia Millia Islamia, in 2002, and since then has worked in the Bombay film, television, and music industry. He worked on documentary shorts, shorts, and video documentaries before shooting his first feature Shuddh Desi Romance (Maneesh Sharma, IN, 2013). Manu’s second feature project, the National Award winner, Dum Laga Ke Haisha (Sharat Katariya, IN, 2015) earned him the “Best Cinematography” award at the 61st Filmfare Awards. Fan (Maneesh Sharma, IN, 2016) is Manu’s third feature. There are two distinct protagonists in the film: the fan Gaurav Chandna and the star Aryan Khanna, but played by the same star-actor, Shah Rukh Khan. How ... Read More

  • Neither Day Nor Night: Peggy Ahwesh’s Palestinian Essays
    • Abstract: Peggy Ahwesh generously offered to meet somewhere halfway between us, and on Sunday, May 7, 2017, we found ourselves at a mutual friend’s house in the Catskills, settling into a conversation. I taught in the same program at Al-Quds Bard College in the West Bank the year before she did, and I was eager to talk with her about her work made during her time there. During our exchange, Ahwesh underscored the importance of theory for her work and noted that writer Maggie Nelson taught an entire class on her—each week pairing a piece by Ahwesh with theoretical readings, addressing topics of contemporary relevance. Nelson’s syllabus, “The Lens of Peggy Ahwesh,” inserted after the interview, is an instantiation of the ... Read More
