The Bressonians

£45.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

***Sold as new, in near perfect condition***

No underlining, inscriptions or library stamps. Pages are clean and spine is un-creased. Price written in pencil on first blank page.

How should we understand film authorship in an era when the idea of the solitary and sovereign auteur has come under attack, with critics proclaiming the death of the author and the end of cinema? The Bressonians provides an answer in the form of a strikingly original study of Bresson and his influence on the work of filmmakers Jean Eustache and Maurice Pialat. Extending the discourse of authorship beyond the idea of a singular visionary, it explores how the imperatives of excellence function within cinema's pluralistic community. Bresson's example offered both an artistic legacy and a creative burden within which filmmakers reckoned in different, often arduous, and altogether compelling ways.

Lovingly sourced from donations and listed online by our shop volunteers at Oxfam Books, Byres Road Glasgow.
