A Long Hard Look at Slow Cinema Studies

Frame grab from Teodors/Theodore (Laila Pakalniņa, Latvia 2006). Read about Pakalniņa's films in the context of "slow cinema"

'Cinema is the art of playing with time.'
(Alain Resnais cited in Freddy Sweet, The Film Narratives of Alain Resnais (Ann Arbor, Michigan: UMI Research Press, 1981), 5. and in Alex Ling, 'Parentheses in Time: L’Année Dernière à Marienbad (1961) as Amorous Event', Screening the Past, 43, 2012)

Film Studies For Free has been taking its time lately. What better subject for it to tackle then, in its latest entry of links to online scholarly (alongside other, high quality and/or highly relevant) work, than slow cinema studies?

With no further ado, FSFF presents the below list, with many thanks to Girish Shambu for his initial, inspirational link.
