From Screen: essays on screen theory, art film and affect, and early Japanese and Chinese cinema

Image from The Piano (Jane Campion, 1993) 

Film Studies For Free was ever so happy to discover that Screen, the leading international journal of academic film and television studies -- a journal with which FSFF's author has been proud to be associated as an editorial advisory board member since 1995 -- has a number of wonderful articles and reviews which have been made freely accessible online in full-text and pdf formats.  

This blog particularly liked the essays, linked to below, by Annette Kuhn (a great reflection on screen theorizing on the occasion of Screen's 50th anniversary) and by Barbara Klinger in which she revisits film theories of affect as well as the debates around Jane Campion's 1993 film The Piano.

This blogpost won't mean too much to those readers who can take institutional subscriptions to Screen for granted, but FSFF knows it will be appreciated by many others, in lots of different parts of the world, who don't enjoy that particular scholarly benefit.
