In Japan, film scripts (shinario) have long been a notable presence both in cinema’s production and reception. This talk discusses the historical representation of screenwriters as film authors by looking at their working methods and writing spaces within the studio system. It also addresses the appearance of a new kind of reader that was prompted by the abundant publishing of film scripts for a wider audience since the 1950s. Consumed in this manner, scripts arguably complement as well as contest screen viewing experience while proposing alternative film histories.

Lauri Kitsnik (MA Tokyo PhD Cantab) is Robert and Lisa Sainsbury Fellow at the Sainsbury Institute for the Study of Japanese Arts and Cultures in Norwich. His interests include world film history, comparative film theory, adaptation and screenwriting. His work has appeared in the Journal of Japanese and Korean Cinema, Journal of Screenwriting and Women Screenwriters: An International Guide.
