Summary

The advent of new screening practices and viewing habits in the twenty-first century has spurred a public debate over what it means to be a “cinephile.” In Anxious Cinephilia, Sarah Keller places these competing visions in historical and theoretical perspective, tracing how the love of movies intertwines with anxieties over the content and impermanence of cinematic images.Keller reframes the history of cinephilia from the earliest days of film through the French New Wave and into the streaming era, arguing that love and fear have shaped the cinematic experience from its earliest days. This anxious love for the cinema marks both institutional practices and personal experiences, from the curation of the moviegoing experience to the creation of community and identity through film festivals to posting on social media. Through a detailed analysis of films and film history, Keller examines how changes in cinema practice and spectatorship create anxiety even as they inspire nostalgia. Anxious Cinephilia offers a new theoretical approach to the relationship between spectator and cinema and reimagines the concept of cinephilia to embrace its diverse forms and its uncertain future.

    A partir de un verso de Joaquín Sabina, "Dile que le he escrito un blues", pero también de la interdisciplinariedad de George Steiner, de la crítica musical y literaria de Edward Said o de las concepciones antagónicas sobre la interpretación de Stravinsky o Borges, este libro aborda la traducción entendiéndola en su sentido más amplio: como una actividad heterotópica a caballo entre espacios y tiempos epistemológicos diversos; una actividad que atraviesa, no solo todas las artes contemporáneas, desde la música y la pintura o la danza hasta la literatura, sino también cada momento de nuestra vida, desde el nacimiento hasta el ocaso.
    
    Traducir es dejarse seducir por las palabras, y también seducir a las palabras. Lo realmente difícil de traducir no es averiguar lo que el texto dice sino lo que no dice explícitamente, a través de los ruidos y de las melodías de las palabras. La música y la traducción son formas de comunicación, y lo que comunican es información pero también emociones. Ese es el objetivo de este libro. Reflexionar sobre la sabiduría que se torna audible al oído que piensa. El conocimiento hecho música. La cuestión de cómo piensa el oído, de qué pensamos al escuchar o de cómo y qué escuchamos al pensar. Y es que a todos, pero especialmente a los traductores, las palabras nos abren los ojos y nos meten en el mundo y nos animan a mirar de reojo y a cantar. Con ellas reconstruimos tristezas ajenas en lágrimas propias y reinventamos laberintos al recibir mensajes a veces indescifrables.
    
    Sin embargo, traducir siempre es posible, aun en aquellos casos en los que las palabras nos crean y nos recrean, nos hacen creer y descreer, nos obligan a anudar incertidumbres y a acariciar lo que tal vez de otro modo, desde otra profesión, nunca hubiéramos querido tocar.

    I woke up on Christmas morning to a special present my daddy and brother had bought for me. It was a perfume that smelled wonderful and made me feel like I was floating. Before I knew it, I was sandwiched in between the two of them. They held me in the air and filled my virgin holes up completely. And now I'm filled with Daddy's seed ... and his baby.
