The Square Screen: A Reflection on Unhip Cinema of the 1960s
Illustrated with a variety of clips, this reflection suggests how mainstream films of the American Sixties complicate easy divisions of the period into establishment cinema and a hip, cutting-edge alternative.
Dana Polan is a Professor of Cinema Studies at NYU and author of 8 books in film and media studies, including Power and Paranoia: History, Narrative, and the American Cinema, 1940-1950, Scenes of Instruction: The Beginnings of the U.S. Study of Film, 1915-1935, and Julia Child’s the French Chef
