Influential Storytelling At Its Finest: Why The Postwar West Took Notice Of Yasujirō Ozu’S Tokyo Story, Abigail Deveney 2021 Institute of Social Sciences, TOYO University

Influential Storytelling At Its Finest: Why The Postwar West Took Notice Of Yasujirō Ozu’S Tokyo Story, Abigail Deveney

Japanese Society and Culture

Tokyo Story (1953) came to fame in 1958, when Yasujiro Ozu’s postwar film about a fragmenting family won the Sutherland prize at the London Film Festival – or so cinematic scholarship suggests. There is, however, a much more complex tale to be told. In fact, director Ozu’s shomingeki-genre film was being discussed and promoted internationally long before what is considered that watershed moment.

This dissertation explores why the western world took note. It argues that Tokyo Story’s nuanced and humanist narrative was a unique form of soft power, attracting and persuading decades before that concept was formally articulated ...


Measuring The Effects Of Narrative And Analytical Messages In Video Production, Levy G. Randolph II, Ricky W. Telg, Joy N. Rumble, Sebastian Galindo, Angela B. Lindsey 2021 Kansas State University

Measuring The Effects Of Narrative And Analytical Messages In Video Production, Levy G. Randolph Ii, Ricky W. Telg, Joy N. Rumble, Sebastian Galindo, Angela B. Lindsey

Journal of Applied Communications

Communication practitioners in the agriculture industry have the challenge of identifying the best way to educate consumers, and they have experienced challenges in consumer engagement. Additionally, food safety issues have continued to rise with a trend of recalls and foodborne illnesses. While the rhetoric in the agriculture industry is pointing to the need for agricultural issues to be addressed from an agriculturist sharing their stories and perspectives, there is limited research on the impact of personal narratives on attitude change and message elaboration. The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of narrative and analytical practices on elaboration ...


Morkovcha [Korean Carrot Salad], Lidiya A. Kan 2021 CUNY Hunter College

Morkovcha [Korean Carrot Salad], Lidiya A. Kan

School of Arts & Sciences Theses

Morkovcha, Korean Carrot Salad is a short documentary that tells a story of ethnic Koreans from Russia and the post-Soviet territories making their new home in New York City. The history of the diaspora is told through conversations with my mother, personal stories, fragmented memories, and my family photo archive. This very personal film is my attempt to revisit the 160-year history of the Russian Korean diaspora and to record and preserve our unique fusion of cultures in the melting pot that is the United States. Its purpose is to help to process and accept the tragic past of my ...


Article 6.21, Tatiana Stolpovskaya 2021 CUNY Hunter College

Article 6.21, Tatiana Stolpovskaya

School of Arts & Sciences Theses

Article 6.21 is a short documentary film that aims to examine the state of censorship around queerness in Russia today and its effects on personal lives in the queer community.

Twenty years after Russia decriminalized homosexuality, on June 30th in 2013, President Vladimir Putin signed Article 6.21 "for the Purpose of Protecting Children from Information Advocating for a Denial of Traditional Family Values", also known as the "Gay Propaganda Law". Its broad and ambiguous wording allows the government significant leeway in deciding what kind of public queerness is punishable.

In 2020 Russia passed multiple constitutional amendments that affect ...

In Order To Escort Her, Kimberly Baglieri 2021 CUNY Hunter College

In Order To Escort Her, Kimberly Baglieri

School of Arts & Sciences Theses

In Order To Escort Her is a thirty-five minute hybrid-documentary in which Lila, my great-aunt, converses with her niece, my mother, about various supernatural creature encounters and spirit visitations from relatives. This is interspersed with a “visitation” from another close relative, communicating from a different time and space dimension. By weaving together supernatural stories and matter-of-fact accounts of resilience and survival, a magical world is created where boundaries between the material and the invisible realms blur. The main thematic concerns of this film are love, care, presence in joy amidst terror, and the journey of the soul.


Letting The Body Lead, Amanda Boggs 2020 University of Massachusetts Amherst

Letting The Body Lead, Amanda Boggs

Masters Theses

Letting the Body Lead is an exhibition and workshop series that focuses on embodiment in social context and invites attendees to engage with the work, both as viewers and active participants. Embodiment in social context refers to the understanding of lived experiences in the body. Within my creative practice, I explore the body's creativity, knowledge, and agency while bridging and brining together the fields of fine arts, movement-based and socially just art making. I believe in the transformative potential of how movement and contemplative practices can support a more liberated way of being both within an individual and, by ...


Contemporary MoʻOlelo: Filling The Literature Stream With Pacific Water, Kalilinoe Detwiler 2020 University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa

Contemporary MoʻOlelo: Filling The Literature Stream With Pacific Water, Kalilinoe Detwiler

Horizons

Introduction: This paper discusses the essentialness of drawing from moʻolelo and traditional knowledge in creative works and conducting the production of those works through an Indigenous lens. Methods: I first identify the discourse community through which the research and conclusions are oriented, which is the Native Hawaiian community interested in telling stories through new mediums. I identify a concern of this community which is the number of storytellers who use Hawaiʻi as a backdrop for stories that misrepresent the community and culture in the entertainment industry as a commodity. Results: Through the research, I identify the harm of allowing non-Indigenous ...


Pivotal Transition - A Women’S Skateboarding Documentary, Maya Volpacchio 2020 Salem State University

Pivotal Transition - A Women’S Skateboarding Documentary, Maya Volpacchio

Honors Theses

This documentary examines the current state of women’s skateboarding during a pivotal time in the industry. Social media has allowed what was once a small, marginalized community to blossom into something much greater. In addition, the induction of skateboarding into the next Summer Olympics places the sport at an interesting crossroads. I begin with a personal reflection of my own journey in skateboarding, acknowledging how the lack of visibility for women and the male dominance made participating in the sport intimidating and difficult. I transition to talk about how once I began meeting other women skateboarders and building a ...

El Abrazo De La Serpiente O Un Mise-En-Scène Sin Fronteras, Sandra Ortiz-València 2020 University of Colorado Boulder

El Abrazo De La Serpiente O Un Mise-En-Scène Sin Fronteras, Sandra Ortiz-València

South East Coastal Conference on Languages & Literatures (SECCLL)

El abrazo de la serpiente es una de las obras cumbre del cine latino americano que más reconocimiento internacional ha obtenido, pero ¿por qué el filme de Ciro Guerra fascinó a un público tan amplio y diverso, obteniendo premios en lugares tan alejados y dispares como Montreal o Yereván, por nombrar alguno? Esta presentación realiza un análisis en profundidad de la puesta en escena en El abrazo para explicar el lenguaje audiovisual con el que el filme de Ciro Guerra construye una narrativa cinematográfica alejada de las formas dominantes, pero habilitada para emocionar a audiencias de todo el mundo. Tomando ...

Toward A Fluid Cinematic Spectatorship And Desire: Revisiting Laura Mulvey’S Psychoanalytic Film Theories, Taylor Ashton McGoey 2020 The University of Western Ontario

Toward A Fluid Cinematic Spectatorship And Desire: Revisiting Laura Mulvey’S Psychoanalytic Film Theories, Taylor Ashton Mcgoey

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

This thesis project re-evaluates Laura Mulvey’s film theories regarding psychoanalysis and the “male gaze,” first found in her essay “Visual Pleasure and Narrative Cinema” (1975). By re-evaluating the limitations of Mulvey’s use of the Freudian and Lacanian psychoanalytic model this project seeks to understand the desires and processes of identification of cinematic spectators who reject the ideological imperative of the “male gaze”. As many critics have noted, Mulvey’s initial examination of cinema does not account for LGBTQ+ spectators and/or black spectators who occupy looking relations that reject cis-normative and heteronormative white Hollywood cinematic conventions. From this ...

盜亦有道 : 關於中國網絡字幕組的記憶和敘述 (2001-2020), Yayuan Ma

Cultural Studies@Lingnan 文化研究@嶺南

二零零一年中國加入世界貿易組織(WTO),在與世界接軌的同時,也抓緊時機大力發展文化產業以輸出文化產品和價值理念。同年,互聯網開始在中國普及,以翻譯歐美日韓影視劇爲主的網絡字幕組應運而生、發展壯大,且因工作高效和免費服務而廣受互聯網用戶追捧和好評。網絡字幕組以游走於法律灰色地帶的方式為中國互聯網用戶引入海量影視劇資源,而中國官方從起初的視而不見到為加强知識版權和文化審查而接連打擊、查封字幕組,並把字幕組在跨文化傳播上的巨大貢獻排除在中國文化產業發展的敘述邏輯之外


十九大之際,從影片《戰狼Ⅱ》淺談個人主義, Huoma MAN SHAN 2020 Lingnan University

十九大之際,從影片《戰狼Ⅱ》淺談個人主義, Huoma Man Shan

Cultural Studies@Lingnan 文化研究@嶺南

二零一七年《戰狼Ⅱ》(以下簡稱:《戰2》)的上映,不僅刷新了中國票房資本紀錄,也被國內外多家主流媒體作為一種文化現象廣為報導。這位由吳京老師自導自演的「Captain China」,身披五星紅旗,腳踏雇傭士軍,一騎當千、百毒不侵、萬夫莫當地穿梭於各種槍林彈雨。他以一個近乎完美的個人英雄主義形象,懷著為搜尋殺害未婚妻真凶的內心執著,用精通十八班武藝這特種兵的身份,幫助解決了一個國際危機,片中盧靖姍(Celina Jade)飾演的混血美女無國界醫生猶如「007幫女郎」般伴其左右。
