Description

Picture Perfect : Landscape, Place and Travel in British Cinema Before 1930 by Laraine Porter and Bryony Dixon English | 2015 | ISBN: 1905816014 | 157 Pages | PDF | 9.5 MB The fifth in a series of volumes from the annual British Silent Cinema Festival held in Nottingham (and the first to be published by Exeter), this collective study offers an original treatment of the relationship between pre-1930 cinema and landscape. The British cinema has drawn extensively on our national landscapes. Filmmakers have explored the entrenched myth of an idyllic rural tradition, intimately bound up with a popular definition of national heritage. Conversely, within a documentary-realist framework, they have looked at the contemporary urban aesthetic, derived partly from a Victorian tradition of social investigation. The fifth in a series of volumes from the annual British Silent Cinema Festival held in Nottingham (and the first to be published by Exeter), this collective study offers an original treatment of the relationship between pre-1930 cinema and landscape. The Nottingham festival from which this collection derives brought together a group of leading specialists - practitioners, academics and individual researchers - who between them provide a detailed investigation into the national cinema before the sound era.
