Taxidermia Pelicula Critical Thinking

All countries and nations are deeply affected by their neighbours and every national cinema reflects this relationship. This book explores how postcolonial approaches can 'frame' the neighbours of people living in Eastern Europe. It elucidates how the region has evolved from being a communist extension of the Soviet Union to becoming integrated into neoliberal capitalism. Drawing on classical studies of post-coloniality by Edward Said, Gayatri C. Spivak and Homi K. Bhabha, as well as the works of theorists and historians like Janusz Korek and Jaak Kangilaski, who specialise in the Eastern European variant of postcolonialism, the book demonstrates particular sensitivity to the question of genre in investigating how neighbours fit into and shape melodramas and thrillers, heritage and war films. Contributors explore a wide range of films in relation to territory, from the steppes of the East to reunified Berlin and to Albania on the Adriatic Sea and from the streets of Tallinn to the hill slopes of Transylvania.

Individual chapters situate in a new context the movies of internationally celebrated filmmakers, such as Roman Polanski, Agnieszka Holland, Nikita Mikhalkov and Jan Hrebejk, as well as introducing films by locally renowned directors, such as Wladyslaw Pasikowski, Arsen Anton Ostojic' and Leida Laius.

The Sundance Institute Feature Film Program (FFP) advances original storytelling from distinctive voices by supporting independent filmmakers from development through distribution of their feature projects. The program was established over 30 years ago, responding to the shared conviction that independent film has the ability to catalyze far-reaching artistic and cultural impact. Through Labs, mentorship, grants, and year-round customized strategic support, we are committed to fostering self-expression, risk-taking, collaboration, and community. The program has championed the unique visions of a next generation of feature filmmakers from around the world, and has become an international model for supporting artists.

More than 400 films supported by the FFP have been made and have connected with audiences worldwide, including:

Reinaldo Marcus Green’s Monsters and Men • Eliza Hittman's Beach Rats • Geremy Jasper's Patti Cake$ • Anna Rose Holmer's The Fits • Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert's Swiss Army Man • Marielle Heller's The Diary of a Teenage Girl • Damien Chazelle's Whiplash • Ryan Coogler’s Fruitvale Station • Benh Zeitlin and Lucy Alibar’s Beasts of the Southern Wild • Sean Durkin’s Martha Marcy May Marlene • Cary Fukunaga’s Sin Nombre • Dee Rees’ Pariah • Haifaa Al-Mansour's Wadjda • Ritesh Batra's The Lunchbox
