CALL FOR ARTICLES: Miklos Jancso special issue

KINOEYE  | The fortnightly journal of film in the new Europe       ISSN 1475-2441

Miklos Jancso has long been recognised as a major European auteur,
especially praised for carefully choreographed camerawork and the remarkable
performances he draws out of his actors. Despite this widespread
acknowledgement, his films are rarely screened and, even on the festival
circuit and in art house cinemas, they have not been well represented. A
more positive reception has been prevented in part by the deep cultural and
historical references that Jancso employs and a dense narrative style that
eschews "main" characters with whom the audience can identify in favour of
symbolism and abstraction.

*Kinoeye*'s special issue on Jancso seeks to explore his whole career and
unravel the many thematic strands that make up this visionary director's

Submissions are especially sought in the form of analyses of individual
Jancso films or groupings of films (e.g., the *Lord's Lantern...* trilogy).
However, we are also more than willing to consider submissions on:

-- interviews with Jancso collaborators
-- the historical background to Jancso's films
-- motifs in Jancso's works
-- Jancso's use of actors
-- the political subtexts of Jancso's films
-- history of reception of Jancso's films

Deadline: 30 January 2003

Authors are advised to consult with *Kinoeye* before submission.
