> This is a ' call for papers' for issue #68 of CineAction, an
> international film journal published 3 times a year in Toronto,
> Canada. The theme for this issue is Natural Born Killers. The
> issue's scope is broad, and intended to cover not just the obvious ,
> in homage to Oliver Stone's film, a focus on the American obsession
> with violence and death as evidenced by American cinema both
> mainstream and independent, past and present; but also possible
> explorations of the impact of the democratization of imagemaking,
> where the proliferation and popularization of digital cameras, both
> still and video, have enabled everyone to both frame and expose their
> own manufactured horrors, from the US soldiers at Abu Ghraib to Iraqi
> terrorist executions, both available on the internet for downloading
> in the privacy of your own home. In extension, Natural Born Killers
> also refers beyond America's borders, as other national cinemas
> (Korea and Japan, to name two), have also produced an inordinate
> number of films about death and horror.
> Papers should be submitted in hard copy only, mailed directly to
> Susan Morrison, the editor of this issue. Once accepted for
