Abstract:We can all list the name of film actresses and film directors. Few of us will remember the name of a scenarist. And yet, the sce- narist might be responsible for every cut of every shot of every scene of a film. This talk is about the Weimar-era Béla Balázs, arguably the world’s most misunderstood film scenarist. In high demand for his world renowned theoretical understanding of the image, Balázs nevertheless is almost entirely unknown for his work in the film studio. Drawing on actual films by Balázs I have retrieved from archives, this talk hopes to recover not just the travails of the scenarist, but the aspects of the film image that he or she haunts.
