Marek Paryz (University of Warsaw), “Unwanted Salvation: The Use of the Savior Formula in Andreas Prochaska’s The Dark Valley (2014)”

The Austrian film The Dark Valley (dir. Andreas Prochaska, 2014) provides a unique attestation to the applicability of the convention of the Western for problematizing context-specific social and cultural issues. The film features an American man named Greider who arrives at a godforsaken Austrian village located in the mountains.

Delphine Robic-Diaz (Université Paul-Valéry Montpellier 3), “Claude Bernard-Aubert's Les Tripes au soleil (1959) : Exoticism and Decadence at the Twilight of Colonialism”

Samira Nadkarni (Independent Scholar), "Chhattisgarh as India’s Frontier: Reading Masurkar’s Newton (2017) as Postcolonial Western"

Amit V. Masurkar’s 2017 film, Newton is simultaneously a satire and reconfirmation of the myths of democratic nationhood, exploring a postcolonial narrative of internal colonisation in the creation of national hegemony and law-making. The plot follows a young government clerk, Newton Kumar (Rajkummar Rao), whose attempts to honestly run a voting booth in the jungles of Chhattisgarh is hindered by the Indian army’s morally-ambiguous protocols, the constant threat of attack by Naxals (the soldiers of India’s Maoist-revolution), as well as his own rigid preconceptions of the democratic process and its best ...
