Framing the World

The essays in this collection make a contribution to the greening of film studies andexpand the scope of ecocriticism as a discipline traditionally rooted in literary studies. Inaddition to highlighting particular films as productive tools for raising awareness and educating usabout environmental issues, Framing the World: Explorations in Ecocriticism andFilm encourages its readers to become more ecologically minded viewers, sensitive to theways in which films reflect, shape, reinforce, and challenge our perceptions of nature, ofhuman/nature relations, and of environmental issues. The contributors to this volume offerin-depth analyses of a broad range of films, including fictional and documentary, Hollywood andindependent, domestic and foreign, experimental and indigenous. Drawing from disciplines includingfilm theory, ecocriticism, philosophy, rhetoric, environmental justice, and American and Indigenousstudies, Framing the World offers new and original approaches to the ecocritical study of cinema. The twelve essays are gathered in four parts, focusing on ecocinema as activist cinema, therepresentation of environmental justice issues in Hollywood, independent, and foreign films, therepresentation of animals, ecosystems, and natural and human-made landscapes in live action andanimation, and ecological themes in the films of two eco-auteurs, Kiyoshi Kurosawa and PeterGreenaway. Willoquet-Maricondi's introduction provides an overview of the field ofecocriticism and offers both philosophical and theoretical foundations for the ecocritical study offilms.ContributorsBeth Berila, St. Cloud State University Lynne Dickson Bruckner, Chatham College Elizabeth Henry, University of Denver Joseph K.
