Cíle předmětu
The first three lectures will focus on the history of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer from its inception in the silent period to the present, seeing it as a paradigmatic example of the development of the Hollywood studio system in its various phases. The following two lectures will deal with the position of the avant-garde in relation to mainstream filmmaking, looking first at early cinema (pre-1917) and then at the American avant-garde in the 1920s/30s. A final lecture will discuss the interrelationship of film preservation and the construction of film history.
Jan-Christopher Horak received his B.A. in history from the University of Delaware, an M.S. in film from Boston University, and his PhD. from the Dept. of Communications at the Westfalische Wilhlems-Universitat in Munster, Germany. His long career as a film archivist and curator has taken him from George Eastman House, where he was Senior Curator of the Film Department to the directorship of the Munich Filmmuseum (Germany). In 1998 he became Founding Director of Archives & Collections at Universal Studios, then moved to Hollywood Entertainment Museum, where he was curator until 2006. He has taught as an Adjunct at the University of Rochester, the Munich Film Academy, the University of Salzburg, and at Wayne State University's Program Abroad, and has been Visiting Professor at UCLA since 1999, teaching in Critical Studies and in Moving Image Archive Studies. Horak has published numerous books, including "Making Images Move: Photographers and Avant-Garde Cinema" (1997), "Berge, Licht und Traum. Dr. Arnold Fanck und der deutsche Bergfilm" (1997), "Lovers of Cinema. The First American Film Avant-Garde 1919-1945" (1995), "The Dream Merchants: Making and Selling Films in Hollywood's Golden Age" (1989), "Anti Nazi Filme der deutschsprachigen Emigration von Hollywood" (1984), "Fluchtpunkt Hollywood.
