Special Dossier for Jura Gentium Cinema: Indigenous Bodies in Motion Pictures
Call for Papers Date:
The online journal “Jura Gentium Cinema” (www.jgcinema.org) is seeking articles (3,000-5,000 words) for a special issue on the depiction of Indigenous bodies in motion pictures, from “Apocalypto” to the “Whale Rider”.
The articles should critically address cinematic representations of Indigenous cultures that either idealize or negate the Other, while also drawing attention to how films subvert and re-write these representations as part of Indigenous peoples’ efforts to reclaim their own images and rendering on the silver screen.
Film reviews should be informative and evaluative, without being dismissive: that is, the reviewer should find some value in the work being reviewed.
