-[[Joris Ivens]] @110 
-'''Joris Ivens''' ([[1898]]–[[1989]]) was a [[Dutch cinema|Dutch]] [[documentary film]]maker and devout [[communist]]. He is generally respected as one of the foremost documentarists of the twentieth century, noted for his [[political film]] ''[[Misère au Borinage]]'', which I had the pleasure of screening in class last year.+# [[protest]], [[demonstration]]
 +# [[parade]]
 +# The act or process of becoming [[manifest]].
 +# The [[symptoms]] or [[observable]] [[conditions]] which are seen as a result of some [[disease]].
-''Borinage'' is noteworthy in media theory because it proves the inherent ficticiousness of the documentary film.+'''Manifestation''' may refer to:
-Like most documentaries, it mixes reality and fiction, and in this case, contrary to [[authorial intention]]. For the film, the two directors had arranged a [[manifestation]] with [[Extra (actor)|extra]]s from the Borinage. The miners were to walk behind a portrait of [[Karl Marx]]. The police mistook it for a real manifestation, they intervened and the "protest" was dispersed. This was filmed by Ivens and Storck. +* [[Avatar]], manifestation of God in Hinduism
 +* [[Epiphany]]
-It would cause [[Walter Benjamin]] to write in ''[[The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction]]'':  
-:"Similarly, the [[newsreel]] offers everyone the opportunity to rise from passer-by to movie extra. In this way any man might even find himself part of a work of art, as witness [[Vertov]]'s ''[[Three Songs About Lenin]]'' or [[Ivens]] ''[[Misère au Borinage|Borinage]]''."  
-Fortelling Andy Warhol's famous [[15 minutes]] dictum, Benjamin added that "Any man today can lay claim to being filmed."  
-If ''Borinage'' is a [[Blakean]] [[dystopian]] "[[and did these feet]]" [[anti-industrialization]] document, Ivens also made ''[[Rain (1929 film)|Rain]]'', a much more [[impressionist]] affair, generally considered a "[[city symphony]]," a loosely outlined genre typified by ''[[Manhatta]]'' ([[1921]]) and ''[[Berlin: Die Sinfonie der Großstadt]]'', ([[1927]]). 
-It is two years ago today since I first[] spent time on the concept of [[hauntology]]. Originally a French language [[pun]] on the homophonic concept [[ontology]], it is now a musical category in [[nascent state]] closest in kinship to [[dubstep]], championed most prominently by British author [[K-Punk]]. 
-[[Hauntology Now!]] was a [[symposium]] held [[May 12]], [[2008]] in the [[United Kingdom]] featuring [[K-Punk]] and [[Kode9]].  
-Since then Australian philosopher [[Gary Sauer-Thompson]] has written quite frequently about it, I've written about that here:''[[Gary Sauer-Thompson on hauntology]]''. 
-Two days ago I added the [[Burial Mix]]es to the concept on semantic and aesthetic grounds. If you don't like the news go out and make some of your own.
