Histories of French cinema from the conversion to sound to the outbreak of war in 1939 have tended to focus on the "atmospherics" of poetic realism and on the political filmmaking of the Popular Front. While this dual emphasis justly reflects the esthetic modernity of the period and some of the medium’s greatest achievements, it has perhaps discouraged historians from considering works, directors, and genres that were no less crucial to the self-representations of a period characterized by deep ideological divisions and competing notions of screen entertainment. Colloquium participants will assess the perennity of historical reckonings of French (and European) cinema of the 1930s and see what forms of dialogue emerge across the political spectrum, with particular emphasis on the shifting parameters of the “popular.”
