New FILM-PHILOSOPHY on Phenomenology and Psychoanalysis (Herzog, Solondz, Cronenberg, Streitfeld, Eisenstein, Antonioni, Tarkovsky, Zhang Yimou, Forgács)

Frame grab from Stalker (Andrei Tarkovsky, 1979). Read Adrian Ivakhiv's essay on this film in the latest issue of Film Philosophy

And the brilliant, online, film journal issues just keep on coming...

Film Studies For Free is delighted to bring you news of the latest offering from one of the highest quality e-journals of them all - Film-Philosophy.
FP, Vol 15, No 1 (2011) is a special issue on Phenomenology and Psychoanalysis, edited by David Sorfa. FSFF particularly liked Adrian Ivakhiv's 'ecocritical' essay which explores Tarkovsky's Stalker, along with Jacqueline Loeb's fine 'Foucauldian' study of sound in Zhang Yimou's Raise the Red Lantern. But there are other excellent contributions, too. 

Readers should also note that it is now possible to donate to the journal. Film-Philosophy is an independent Open Access academic journal operating without recurring financial support. Donations of any amount to the journal are gratefully received and provide a means for the editors to continue to provide a journal of the highest quality to its readers. Just click on the "Donations" link on the FP website.

For those of you who are interested in phenomenological film studies, do take a look, if you haven't already, at FSFF's previous gathering of links to online and openly accessible work on this topic.
