This title presents a unique account of cinema's most influential journal. "Cahiers du Cinema" was the single most influential project in the history of film. Founded in 1951, it was responsible for establishing film as the 'seventh art', equal to literature, painting or music, and it revolutionized film-making and writing. Its contributors would put their words into action: the likes of Godard, Truffaut, Rivette, Rohmer were to become some of the greatest directors of the age, their films part of the internationally celebrated Nouvelle Vague. In this rich, authoritative new history, Emilie Bickerton explores the evolution and impact of "Cahiers du Cinema", from its early years, to its late-sixties radicalization, its internationalization, and its response to the television age of the seventies and eighties. Showing how the story of Cahiers continues to resonate with critics, practitioners and the film-going public, "A Short History of Cahiers du Cinema" is a testimony to the extraordinary legacy and archive these 'collected pages of a notebook' have provided for the world of cinema.
