Children of Transition is a coming-of-age story about David, Natalija, Lana and Marta. After an excellent performance before the scouts of FC Barcelona, eight-year-old David, called 'Messi from Slavonski Brod' by the media, cannot wait to be invited to La Masia. This inexistent piece of paper is the basis of David's dreams, but also of the dreams of his entire family of five. Eleven-year-old Natalija comes from a modest background, does not have a smartphone and other trendy things. Because of that she is bullied by her classmates and is forced to change school. Six-year-old Lana spends her days changing clothes, putting on make-up, dancing and playing games on her cell phone. A teenage life defined by bullying at school and on social networks became unbearable for fifteen-year-old Marta… What do a happy childhood and healthy growing up look like? Are they possible in a society which has not yet reached its own maturity? This is a film about the environment we create for our common …

Twenty years ago, noted film scholars Tom Gunning and André Gaudreault introduced the phrase “cinema of attractions” to describe the essential qualities of films made in the medium’s earliest days, those produced between 1895 and 1906. Now, The Cinema of Attractions Reloaded critically examines the term and its subsequent wide-ranging use in film studies.

Audiovisions: Cinema and Television as Entr'actes in History (Amsterdam University Press - Film Culture in Transition)

Audiovisions: Cinema and Television as Entr'actes in History (Amsterdam University Press - Film Culture in Transition) by Siegfried Zielinski
English | June 1, 1999 | ISBN: 9053563032 | 357 Pages | PDF | 57 MB

The production, distribution, and perception of moving images are undergoing a radical transformation. Ever-faster computers, digital technology, and microelectronic are joining forces to produce advanced audiovision -the media vanishing point of the 20th century. Very little will remain unchanged.
The classic institutions for the mediation of film - cinema and television - are revealed to be no more than interludes in the broader history of the audiovisual media. This book interprets these changes not simply as a cultural loss but also as a challenge: the new audiovisions have to be confronted squarely to make strategic intervention possible.

Dogma 95, the avant-garde filmmaking movement founded by the Danish director Lars von Trier and three of his fellow directors, was launched in 1995 at an elite cinema conference in Paris—when von Trier was called upon to speak about the future of film but instead showered the audience with pamphlets announcing the new movement and its manifesto. A refreshingly original critical commentary on the director and his practice, Playing the Waves is a paramount addition to one of new media’s most provocative genres: games and gaming.
