This magnum opus, written by prof. Thomas Waugh (Concordia University, Montreal) and published by AUP (Amsterdam University Press) will become the new world standard in Ivens-studies. The book of 780 pages will be presented on October 21st 2016. It is the first film book to survey the entire career of Joris Ivens and describes the relationship between his films and other filmmakers on all continents. More than a biography of a leftist committed to changing the world through film, The Conscience of Cinema is also a microcosmic history of the documentary and its form, culture, and place within twentieth-century world cinema. Ivens worked in almost every genre, including the essay, compilation, hybrid dramatization, socialist realism, and more. Whether in his native Netherlands, the Soviet Union, the United States, Vietnam, or beyond, he left an indelible artistic and political mark that continues to resonate in the twenty-first century.
