Language: English . Brand New Book. Photographs of missing children are some of the most haunting images of contemporary Western society. The specter of the child at risk from abduction, abuse, or illness, conjures questions about traumatic loss, protection and the family, nostalgia and childhood innocence. Emma Wilson argues that such questions increasingly return in the work of contemporary filmmakers. She explores the representation of missing and endangered children in a number of the key films of the last decade, including Kieslowski s Three Colours: Blue, Atom Egoyan s Exotica, Todd Solondz s Happiness, Jane Campion s The Portrait of a Lad y, Lars von Trier s The Kingdom, and Almodovar s All About My Mother. Wilson contends that the loss of a child is perceived as a limit-experience in contemporary cinema, where filmmakers attempt to transform their means of representation as a response to acute pain and horror.

Synopsis : Photographs of missing children are among the most haunting images of contemporary Western society; the spectre of the child at risk from abduction, abuse or illness conjures questions of traumatic loss, nostalgia and innocence. This book argues that such issues increasingly return in the work of contemporary filmmakers and explores the representation of missing and endangered children in a number of key films of the last decade, including Three Colours: Blue, All About My Mother, Ratcatcher, Jude, The Sweet Hereafter, Happiness and The Son’s Room. This study makes the case for film as reflection on the real and as a space for revealing current personal and cultural anxieties. Through close analysis of film, television and photographic images, and via intense engagement with difficult emotions, Cinema's Missing Children is the first major study of an area of increasing cultural importance and thus offers a new point of focus in contemporary film theory and criticism.
Critique: A fresh and intelligent study. -- Hotdog
