Global Art Cinema New Theories and Histories
A collection of new essays on films from a range of geopolitical locations, Global Art Cinema reassesses the field of art cinema in light of 1) a flourishing international cinema and 2) growing scholarly interest in the category of art cinema and developments within world film culture. The editors have assembled a stimulating group of essays that cover the major issues in global art cinema, including the trend toward both increasing local autonomy and increasing globalization, new theorizations of the film image, revised industrial, legal, and exhibition histories, and the renewed debates about national, postcolonial, and regional cinema cultures. The book brings together a diverse group of authors, including reigning authorities and rising stars, in a timely conversation that reaffirms the study of art cinema as a relevant, provocative, and even fundamental undertaking.
