“A landmark work! The classic films that reported human behaviour experiments selectively told one story but many more were possible…Millard explains why the dominant stories won out with an insightful provocative mix of analysis and speculation.”
Double Exposure examines the role of film in shaping social psychology’s landmark postwar experiments. We are told that most of us will inflict electric shocks on a fellow citizen when ordered to do so. Act as a brutal prison guard when we put on a uniform. Walk on by when we see a stranger in need. But there is more to the story. Documentaries that investigators claimed as evidence were central to capturing the public imagination. Did they provide an alibi for twentieth century humanity? Examining the dramaturgy, staging and filming of these experiments, including Milgram’s Obedience Experiments, the Stanford Prison Experiment and many more, Double Exposure recovers a new set of narratives.
“Brilliant…the first survey to look beyond Hollywood for its rich and varied inspiration.”
“Gem-like essays about the nature of creativity and collaboration that illuminate the working methods of a diverse group of filmmaker.”
Screenwriting in a Digital Era examines the practices of writing for the screen from early Hollywood to the new realism. Looking back to prehistories of the form, Kathryn Millard links screenwriting to visual and oral storytelling around the globe, and explores new methods of collaboration and authorship in the digital environment.
