Identification Of Self: The Oppositional Gaze And Black Female Spectatorship In 12 Years A Slave, Sara Dhurjon 2018 Western University

Identification Of Self: The Oppositional Gaze And Black Female Spectatorship In 12 Years A Slave, Sara Dhurjon

Kino: The Western Undergraduate Journal of Film Studies

This essay applies bell hooks’ theory of the oppositional gaze to the 2013 film, 12 Year’s a Slave. I argue that the film subverts traditional power dynamics linked to the experience of visual pleasure through film by shifting responsibilities between black and white audiences. Whereas previously black audiences had to confront degrading depictions of self as a “way in” to film, white audiences instead had the privilege of critiquing film if whiteness was negated, or else not depicted at all. After a brief overview of hooks’ theory of film, it examines the character of Patsey for the ways in ...


We Ate Them: A Tale Of Rampant Consumerism, Sydney Keefe 2018 University of Western Ontario

We Ate Them: A Tale Of Rampant Consumerism, Sydney Keefe

Kino: The Western Undergraduate Journal of Film Studies

HBO's recent breakout success TV series Westworld stars Anthony Hopkins and Evan Rachel Wood. It is set in a futuristic theme park that has commodified humanities violent impulses including rape and murder. The park allows its wealthy residents to act out their fantasies free of consequence. Westworld depicts the consequences of greed and consumerism that humanity has fallen into. Westworld turns human history and nostalgia, sadism, and women into objects to be sold to the highest bidder. The series proves that no human is impervious to this horrific violence and we all fall victim to our own consumerist desires ...


“She’S Gazing Like The Man”: Parallels Between Laura Mulvey’S And John Berger’S Feminist Film Theory In Andy Flickman’S She’S The Man, Julia Sebastien 2018 Western University

“She’S Gazing Like The Man”: Parallels Between Laura Mulvey’S And John Berger’S Feminist Film Theory In Andy Flickman’S She’S The Man, Julia Sebastien

Kino: The Western Undergraduate Journal of Film Studies

This essay explores how director Andy Flickman both captures, indulges, subverts and parodies Laura Mulvey’s notion of the Gaze in his 2006 Romantic Comedy film, She’s the Man, based on Shakespeare’s comedic play Twelfth Night. After defining the Gaze, how this camera technique is achieved in film, and John Berger’s link between the Gaze and female self-objectification, my essay illustrates how She’s the Man parallels the female experience of adopting the heterosexual male perspective since, in order to escape the sexist gender role forced upon her, protagonist Viola Hastings disguises herself as her brother, a ...


Hour Of The Furnaces: Beyond Spectatorship, Ariana Nicole Magliocco Ms. 2018 The Univeristy of Western Ontario

Hour Of The Furnaces: Beyond Spectatorship, Ariana Nicole Magliocco Ms.

Kino: The Western Undergraduate Journal of Film Studies

Hour of the Furnaces is one of those films you never forget watching, at least I never did. Coming in at about 4 hours, the documentary demands to be seen and heard. Shot clandestinely between 1966 and 1968 by Fernando Solanas and Octavio Getino, the film is a revolutionary call to action meant to awaken and inspire socio-political revolution. Despite the decades that exist between myself and this film, it felt more relevant than anything I have seen in years. The documentary speaks of the ever-present legacy of colonialism and neo-colonial policies which devastates the poor and elevates the rich ...


The Violent Lights Of Capitalism: The Artificiality Of Japan In Giants And Toys, Tanya Sahni 2018 Western University

The Violent Lights Of Capitalism: The Artificiality Of Japan In Giants And Toys, Tanya Sahni

Kino: The Western Undergraduate Journal of Film Studies

Japanese New Wave, similar to new wave movements that appeared after the second world war, was a collision of both a cultural and artistic movement. Japan’s new wave movement represented a new youth that rejected old traditions and struggled with state power. Among the hundreds of films identified as part of this filmic era, Giants and Toys was, and still remains to be, one of the flag bearers for Japanese New Wave. This paper provides a close analysis of the showdown scene between the two main characters Goda and Nishi and engages in discussion about how this relates to ...
