restricted access Finding Borderland: Intermediality in the Films of Marc Forster
Abstract

Abstract:

"Intermediality" has become an umbrella term for a heterogeneous group of concepts as diverse as the creation of an entirely new medium and the mere quotation of a work from one medium in another. Intermedial analyses of specific film texts have appeared sporadically but have shed remarkable light on the influence of other media on film narrative, structure, and visual style. Using the films of Marc Forster as an example, I seek to establish that intermediality is not just a symptom of film's hybrid nature or an accidental by-product of adaptation but an important filmmaking tool with which to highlight and interrogate the limitations of conventionally distinct media as we understand them.
