That orientation can be summed up, perhaps too simply, in one phrase: “the politics of film”. And its effects were felt at all levels of film culture, from the mainstream industry to the independents and all manner of production modes in between; from filmmakers to audiences; from ciné-clubs to film schools; from film journals to film scholars. In part 1 of our interview with Jean-Louis Comolli that period and its political agitations are evoked in exacting detail. At the time, Cahiers was undergoing its so-called “Marxist-Leninist” phase, with a heavy overlay of Lacanian psychoanalytic theory. In the backwash to France’s celebration of The Artist and the inevitable nostalgia for looking back at the golden age of Hollywood cinema, all manner of things have surfaced. Hope you enjoy the new Issue!
