Cinema and the creation of collective memories
In this paper, I link the concept of memory as a visual, mutable process with how we create collective memories. My area of research is narrative film, so here I concentrate on the role of the filmmaker as a key voice in describing the shared memories that help define us collectively. I trace a line from considerations about the workings of memory, through Landsberg’s concept of ‘prosthetic memory’, to the embedding of images that eventually constitute our collective memories, and finally to the role of Historical Film which I see as central to creating our shared visual imaginings of the past.
