Cinematic Bodies of Eastern Europe and Russia : Between Pain and Pleasure - (Hardcover)
About this item
Bringing together a range of theoretical and critical approaches, this edited collection is the first book to examine representations of the body in Eastern European and Russian cinema after the Second World War. It draws on the history of the region, as well as Western and Eastern scholarship on the body, and focuses on three areas: the traumatised body, the body as a site of erotic pleasure, and the relationship between the body and history. Critically dissecting the different ideological and aesthetic ways human bodies are framed, The Cinematic Bodies of Eastern Europe and Russia also demonstrates how bodily discourses oscillate between complicity and subversion, and how they shaped individuals and societies both during and after the period of state socialism.
