ReViewing 1920s Cinematic Impressionism: Germaine Dulac’s Adaptation of Ibsen’s “The Master Builder” or the False Ideal of a Cinema without Theater

Belle Époque Paris was the epicenter of a diverse reevaluation and reconfiguration of suggestive forms that galvanized the art world, bringing innovative musical compositions, exhilarating dance forms, new pictorial models and widespread theatrical renovation. Germaine Dulac, an early theater critic, feminist filmmaker, and pioneer of an aesthetics of suggestion and sensation, made over 30 fiction films, many marking new cinematic tendencies, from impressionist to abstract. A look at the mid-1920s genesis and context of her unrealized film adaptation of Ibsen’s iconic theater play, The Master Builder-1892, renews our perspective of French cinematic impressionism.

Tami Williams is Associate Professor of Film Studies and English at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

Julia Noordegraaf about:

Digital Archives and Methods for Media Historiography

Over the past two decades, academic and cultural heritage institutions have made significant progress in the digitization of audiovisual media content and related materials, such as archival records, newspapers and program guides. In correspondence to these digitization efforts, media scholars have increasingly adopted software available for the creation of databases with structured data on various aspects of the production, distribution and reception contexts. And finally, various new tools have been developed for exploring these new, digital collections and analyzing the data contained in them, such as tools for text mining, image analysis, geographical mapping or network visualization

Julia Noordegraaf is professor of Digital Heritage in the department of Media Studies at the University of Amsterdam.
