Ten founding filmmakers of serial television

ABSTRACT

This article offers an overview of the work of ten founding filmmakers of serial television (Hitchcock, Rossellini, Wiseman, Bergman, Godard, Fassbinder, Reitz, Kieslowski, Lynch y Lars von Trier), juxtaposing their key achievements with other television series that constitute a shared legacy.

Sources of youth. Memories of a past of television fiction

ABSTRACT

This article explores different specific projects for television by filmmakers who work in connection with previous founding forms of TV as a hybrid medium: theater in Jean Renoir, realist novel in Maurice Pialat, televisuality in David Lynch, and verbal discourse in Orson Welles. Thus the specificities of duration, repetition and seriality, plus other televisual traits such as simultaneity, intimacy and popular appeal, turn TV into a realm of infinite possibilities based on a certain “poorness” of its images, which can be hinted in the television projects of such filmmakers.

Television series by Sonimage: Audiovisual practices as theoretical inquiry

ABSTRACT

Through the notion of creation as laboratory and the conception of montage developed by Godard throughout his works, this article analyses Godard’s thought projected from television to cinema based on the television series produced by Sonimage in the late seventies (Six fois deux and France tour détour deux enfants), and the unconcluded project developed in Mozambique for the foundation of the first television network. Related to other contemporary films made by Soinmage such as Ici et allieurs (1974), Numéro deux (1975) and Comment ça va (1975), the television series are proposed both as a vehicle and a base to question aspects of cinema from its margins, reflecting about the theoretical dimension of the audiovisual practices and deepening into the intersection between the political work and the lyrical component that Godard settles within the televisual instrument. Finally, doubt as a motor for creation is questioned based on the interrogative structure of both series.

The televisual practices of Iván Zulueta

ABSTRACT

This article explores the liaisons of Iván Zulueta with television. The first part focuses on his work for the TV program Último grito (Pedro Olea, Iván Zulueta y Ramón Gómez Redondo, TVE, 1968-1970), researching primary and secondary sources from a historiographic standpoint in order to study the context in which this musical show was produced, while linking it with various cultural synergies of its time. Último grito is therefore studied both as a key example of national television and as a juxtaposition of international cultural influences. The last part of the article studies the role of television in the cinematic works of Zulueta throughout the 70’s. Thus the goal of this research is to problematize canonic separations between TV and cinema as mediums, focusing on the trajectory of Zulueta as an example of the growth of Spanish audiovisual culture. A culture in which design, music videos and advertisement merged with experimental cinema and television entertainment, giving birth to a complex net of aesthetic, economic and cultural correspondences.
