This is a ' call for papers' for issue #68  of CineAction, an 
international film journal published 3 times a year in Toronto, 
Canada. The theme for this issue is Natural Born Killers.   The 
issue's scope is broad, and intended to cover not just the obvious , 
in homage to Oliver Stone's film, a focus on the American obsession 
with violence and death as evidenced by American cinema both 
mainstream and independent, past and present; but also possible 
explorations of the impact of the democratization of imagemaking, 
where the proliferation and popularization of digital cameras, both 
still and video, have enabled everyone to both frame and expose their 
own manufactured horrors, from the US soldiers at Abu Ghraib to Iraqi 
terrorist executions, both available on the internet for downloading 
in  the privacy of your own home. In extension, Natural Born Killers 
also refers beyond America's borders, as other national cinemas 
(Korea and Japan, to name two), have also produced an inordinate 
number of films about death and horror.

Papers should be submitted in hard copy only, mailed directly to 
Susan Morrison, the editor of this issue. Once accepted for 
publication, the paper will then be emailed as a file attachment.
The deadline for submission is Sept 1, 2005.  It would be appreciated 
if a brief proposal be submitted as early as possible as an 
indication of intention to submit.
A style guide will be emailed on request.
Please address all queries and submissions to the issue's editor:
