The Dialects and Dialectics of Subtitling: Graphing Language Matters in Film

Day One

Location is wheelchair accessible
5pm Michael Raine: Subtitles in the New Media Age
7pm City of Sadness ( Taiwan, 1989,35mm)

A screening of The City of Sadness.
Followed by a day of discussion of translation. We plan to pay attention exclusively to the “Dialects and Dialectics of Subtitles,” this unwieldy supplement (and uncouth servant) of pure cinema. And we plan to do so dialectically, by putting into conversation experts who care about matters of translation and those who care about matters of cinema, including practitioners who make subtitles and scholars who ruminate about their possibilities and limitations.
