    Favs/dislikes: 20:0. Film essay filmography by Peter Thompson published online in 2005 @ [url=] [/url] [quote=Wikipedia]Film (or "cinematic essays") consist of the evolution of a theme or an idea rather than a plot per se. From another perspective, an essay film could be defined as a documentary film visual basis combined with a form of commentary that contains elements of self-portrait (rather than autobiography), where the signature (rather than the life-story) of the filmmaker is apparent. The cinematic essay often blends documentary, fiction, and experimental film making using a tones and editing styles."[/quote]

  22. Cinema Português: Anos Gulbenkian / Portuguese Cinema: Gulbenkian Years's icon

    Cinema Português: Anos Gulbenkian / Portuguese Cinema: Gulbenkian Years

    Favs/dislikes: 9:0. Films financed by Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation between 1970-1994. In the 1960s, Portugal was living under a long-standing dictatorship with a very present censorship. Aside from that, audiences cared too little about most creative cinematic works to make the business profitable. Therefore, the country had a well-prepared, acknowledged and inventive workforce in a great need of artistic freedom, but virtually no place for experimental or creative cinema. Then, from 1970 (and ending only in 1994, two decades after the old regime downfall) Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation answered filmmakers' requests. It started directing funds to the production of portuguese films, following its rich history of support in the plastic arts, theater, music and other fields. In a few years, the works produced under Gulbenkian's financial and institutional aid were strongly acclaimed in both national and foreign press, and in specialized cinema circuits and festivals, mostly in Italy and France. Without Gulbenkian's support, portuguese 'cinema novo' wouldn't have been anything like it was. This list contains all films produced by Gulbenkian's Portuguese Cinema Center (CPC) during those years that are on IMDB. Among the supported directors, we can find João César Monteiro, Fernando Lopes, António Reis & Margarida Cordeiro, Pedro Costa and the then already senior Manoel de Oliveira.

  24. Viennale's The Way of the Termite: The Essay in Film 1909-2004's icon

    Viennale's The Way of the Termite: The Essay in Film 1909-2004

    Favs/dislikes: 8:0. The Essay in Cinema was organized by The Austrian Film Museum and originally presented at the Viennale (Vienna International Film Festival) in October 2007. [quote]The extensive programme was curated by the French filmmaker and theorist Jean-Pierre Gorin who lives and teaches in San Diego and whose own work - partly created in collaboration with Jean-Luc Godard - includes important contributions to the "essayistic strategy” in cinema. Gorin has selected 60 works from 20 nations - among them a number of classics of film history as well as numerous (re-)discoveries. Beyond the characteristic and often-quoted elements - such as the presence of the author’s voice and the first person singular perspective chosen by many of these films - the essay film according to Gorin "is a rumination in Nietzsche's sense of the word, the meandering of an intelligence that tries to multiply the entries and the exits into the material it has elected (or has been elected by).[/quote]
