Programmatic and Proto-Reflexive Realism: Feuillade’s 'La tare' (1911) and 'Erreur tragique' (1913)
Stockholm University, Faculty of Humanities, Department of Media Studies, Cinema Studies.
2015 (English)In: Objectivity and the Effects of Truth: Early Cinema And The Realist Tradition / [ed] Jordi Pons, Àngel Quintana, Girona: Fundació Mueseu del Cinema-Collectió Tomàs Mallol & Ajuntament de Girona , 2015, p. 141-152Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

This article discusses the cinematic realism of French director Louis Feuillade in the early 1910s. In his famous ‘manifesto’ “La vie telle qu’elle est” he claimed to be the first to bring realism to the screen. His La tare (1911) is analyzed as an attempt to realize the programmatic poetics of the manifesto, combining naturalistic staging and a mostly melodramatic plot. Less typical is Erreur tragique (1913), which both displays the medium’s capacity for witnessing and reproducing ‘real’ events and can be thought of as a ‘proto-reflexive’ form of realism in film.
