Abstract: In Agnès Varda's "Cléo" from 5 to 7 (1961), the protagonist's transformation from feminine masquerade to flâneuse occurs as
a result of her involvement with a city, specifically Paris. Positing the possibility of a female flânerie, this essay establishes
a connection between Agnès Varda and the writers George Sand and Virginia Woolf, thereby showing how a woman walker--a flâneuse--lays
claim to subjectivity.

Abstract: This article traces the cultural history of the movie theater, revealing that both cultural forces and industrial imperatives
are likely to preserve the theater, despite the threat that it will be "substituted for" by digital television, with its promise
of filmlike screen size and picture/sound quality.
Abstract: This historical essay argues that early feature-length films were not simply a new production trend; they represented a series
of developments in distribution and exhibition based on differentiation. Indeed, the American film industry of the early 1910s
followed several competing models of distribution in an effort to differentiate between the uniqueness of the feature and
the standardization fostered by the short-subject program.
Abstract: The coherence of an imperial narrative is predicated on the continuation of the colonial place as a backdrop. In Michael Powell
and Emeric Pressburger's "Black Narcissus" (1947), the fictional Himalayan community of "Mopu" becomes central enough to impede
assumptions projected onto it. However, the threat of narrative collapse is averted by a visibly modernist preoccupation with
the (imperial) self and the film's redemptive theme.
Abstract: This article investigates the struggles over public memory in postwar Germany. The representation of the Red Army Fraction
(RAF) terrorist movement indicates the power of official memory. However, examples from the New German Cinema demonstrate
that the creation of countermemories remained possible even at the peak of terrorism in the "German Autumn" of 1977.
