by Hans-Michael Bock, Kellerkinder Und Stacheltiere Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Kellerkinder Und Stacheltiere book, Im Kino wurde schon immer gelacht. Wann aber der Spaß aufhört und der Ernst beginnt, das haben Filmemacher und Publikum stets aufs Neue ausgelotet. Das neue CineGraph Buch zeigt, dass sich Kurt Tucholskys Frage "Was darf Satire?" in der Filmgeschichte nicht pauschal mit "Alles" beantworten lässt, sondern die Antwort immer abhängig vom historischen Kontext, insbesondere den jeweiligen Machtstrukturen ist. Anstoß für die satirischen Filmproduktionen gaben gesellschaftliche sowie politische Ereignisse wie der Zweite Weltkrieg, die Auseinandersetzung mit dem Nationalsozialismus, der Kalte Krieg, das Wirtschaftswunder, die Entwicklung der Medien oder die kapitalistische Gesellschaft. Das kritisch-unterhaltsame Genre weist ein facettenreiches Spektrum an Filmen auf, von denen einige in den Beiträgen dieses Buches näher betrachtet werden, darunter "Der Maulkorb" (DE 1937/38), "Der Untertan" (DDR 1951), "Animal Farm" (GB 1951–54), die Satire-Serie "Das Stacheltier" (DDR 1953–65), "Wir Wunderkinder" (BRD 1958), "Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb" (GB/US 1964) sowie "Er ist wieder da" (DE 2014/15). Zum Thema des Sammelbandes erschien im November 2019 bereits das cinefest-Katalogbuch "Dr. Seltsam oder: Aus den Wolken kommt das Glück. Film zwischen Polit-Komödie und Gesellschafts-Satire".
by Mark Connelly, George Orwell Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download George Orwell book, George Orwell (1903–1950) is one of the most influential authors in the English language. His landmark novels Animal Farm (1945) and Nineteen Eighty-Four (1949) have been translated into many foreign languages and inspired numerous stage and film adaptations. His well-known essays “A Hanging” and “Shooting an Elephant” are widely anthologized and often taught in college composition classes. The writer is credited with inventing the terms “Big Brother,” “thought crime,” “unperson” and “double think.” His name itself has become an adjective—“Orwellian.” Seventy years after its publication, Nineteen Eighty-Four remains very popular, its sales surging in an era of enhanced surveillance and media manipulation. This literary companion provides an extensive chronology and more than 175 entries about both his literary works and personal life. Also included are discussion questions and research topics, notable quotations by Orwell and an extensive bibliography of related sources.
by George Orwell, George Orwell A Life In Letters Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download George Orwell A Life In Letters book, Appearing for the first time in one volume, these trenchant letters tell the eloquent narrative of Orwell’s life in his own words. From his school days to his tragic early death, George Orwell, who never wrote an autobiography, chronicled the dramatic events of his turbulent life in a profusion of powerful letters. Indeed, one of the twentieth century’s most revered icons was a lively, prolific correspondent who developed in rich, nuanced dispatches the ideas that would influence generations of writers and intellectuals. This historic work—never before published in America and featuring many previously unseen letters—presents an account of Orwell’s interior life as personal and absorbing as readers may ever see. Over the course of a lifetime, Orwell corresponded with hundreds of people, including many distinguished political and artistic figures. Witty, personal, and profound, the letters tell the story of Orwell’s passionate first love that ended in devastation and explains how young Eric Arthur Blair chose the pseudonym "George Orwell." In missives to luminaries such as T. S. Eliot, Stephen Spender, Arthur Koestler, Cyril Connolly, and Henry Miller, he spells out his literary and philosophical beliefs. Readers will encounter Orwell’s thoughts on matters both quotidian (poltergeists and the art of playing croquet) and historical—including his illuminating descriptions of war-shattered Barcelona and pronouncements on bayonets and the immanent cruelty of chaining German prisoners. The letters also reveal the origins of his famous novels. To a fan he wrote, "I think, and have thought ever since the war began…that our cause is the better, but we have to keep on making it the better, which involves constant criticism." A paragraph before, he explained that the British intelligentsia in 1944 were "perfectly ready for dictatorial methods, secret police, systematic falsification of history," prefiguring the themes of 1984. Entrusting the manuscript of Animal Farm to Leonard Moore, his literary agent, Orwell describes it as "a sort of fairy story, really a fable with political meaning…This book is murder from the Communist point of view." Hardly known outside a small circle of Orwell scholars, these rare letters include Orwell’s message to Dwight Macdonald of 5 December 1946 explaining Animal Farm; his correspondence with his first translator, R. N. Raimbault (with English translations of the French originals); and the moving encomium written about Orwell by his BBC head of department after his service there. The volume concludes with a fearless account of the painful illness that took Orwell’s life at age forty-seven. His last letter concerns his son and his estate and closes with the words, "Beyond that I can’t make plans at present." Meticulously edited and fully annotated by Peter Davison, the world’s preeminent Orwell scholar, the volume presents Orwell “in all his varieties” and his relationships with those most close to him, especially his first wife, Eileen. Combined with rare photographs and hand-drawn illustrations, George Orwell: A Life in Letters offers "everything a reader new to Orwell needs to know…and a great deal that diehard fans will be enchanted to have" (New Statesmen).

by David Ryan, George Orwell On Screen Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download George Orwell On Screen book, British author and essayist George Orwell shot to fame with two iconic novels: the anti-Stalinist satire Animal Farm and the dystopian masterpiece Nineteen Eighty-Four. A few years after his death in 1950, the CIA bankrolled screen adaptations of both novels as Cold War propaganda. Orwell's depiction of a totalitarian police state captivated the media in the 1980s. Today, mounting anxieties about digital surveillance and globalization have made him a hot property in Hollywood. Drawing on interviews with actors, writers, directors and producers, this book presents the first comprehensive study of Orwell on film and television. Beginning with CBS's 1953 live production of Nineteen Eighty-Four that mirrored the McCarthy witch hunts, the author covers 20 wide-ranging adaptations, documentaries and biopics, including two lost BBC dramatizations from 1965.

by Ingo Lehmann, Filmgenres Tierfilm Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Filmgenres Tierfilm book, Der Tierfilm hat weit mehr zu bieten als "Flipper" und "Lassie". Mal tragen die tierischen Protagonisten menschliche Eigenschaften, sind lieb und treu, aber auch eitel, schlau und gerissen. Mal sind sie der genaue Gegensatz des Menschen, Sinnbild der wilden, ungebändigten, zuweilen grausamen Natur. Und auch der Mensch selbst tritt vor die Kamera: als bester Freund der Tiere, als Naturschützer und als Wissenschaftler, aber auch als Jäger. Im Tierfilm spiegeln sich mithin auf immer neue Weise unser Verhältnis zur Natur und die ebenso schwierige wie essentielle Beziehung zwischen Mensch und Tier.
