‘Inglourious Basterds: Can Hollywood rewrite history?’: A Fistful of Tarantino Links

Production still from Inglourious Basterds (Quentin Tarantino, 2009)

Especially for those among you not permanently hovering in the Twittersphere, Film Studies For Free today brings a lasting record of (yesterday’s) film-social-networking news du jour: an online video recording in three parts of an academic seminar hosted, on September 24, by Monash University‘s Australian Centre for Jewish Civilisation and Monash’s Research Unit in Film and Cultural Theory, about Quentin Tarantino‘s ‘subversive and divisive new film,’ Inglourious Basterds.

This excellent event was chaired by Age critic Philippa Hawker with the following speakers (in order): Mark Baker, director of the Australian Centre for Jewish Civilisation; Adrian Martin, film critic and co-director of the Research Unit in Film and Cultural Theory; Jan Epstein, film critic and broadcaster; and Nathan Wolski, lecturer in Jewish Studies.

You can view the video segments online at Slow TV (a site worth checking out in itself) or download them as episodes to your computer using the below links (just choose the format you want).

If you are interested in reading more about the debates that these speakers address, FSFF highly recommends you click on the following six links, too.
