Coming in Fall,
Special Issue on the Cahiers
Critics in Arts
Guest Editor: Marco Grosoli

 Famously, Jean-Luc Godard, Jacques Rivette, Eric Rohmer and François Truffaut all wrote for the Cahiers du Cinéma journal (run by André Bazin) before becoming renowned filmmakers. Yet, at the same time, they all also wrote for Arts, a very controversial weekly magazine that was no less decisive in imposing their “politique des auteurs”, the cult of cinematic authorship that proved immensely influential on film culture ever since. This special issue collects essays derived from the talks delivered at symposium held in Canterbury in June, 2014. Their purpose is to reconsider the neglected and in some cases downright unknown body of writings these critics published in Arts, and to give thereby a more accurate view of what the “politique des auteurs” originally was.
