About this item

Featuring more and more on the news, Europe is today a central topic of debate. Likewise, European cinema not only occupies a dominant place in film history, it is also a field that has been raising more interest with the expanding work on the transnational. Having these two areas of concern as its backdrop, Euro-Visions asks what idea of Europe emerges, is represented and constructed by contemporary European cinema.

Adopting a broad and wide-ranging approach, Euro-Visions mixes political sources, historical documents and filmic texts and offers an integration of policy and economic contexts with textual analysis. Mariana Liz examines costume dramas, biopics and war films, mainstream co-productions and tales of 'Fortress Europe' by renowned auteurs, showing how films from different European nations depict and contribute to the formation of the idea of Europe. Case studies includeGirl with a Pearl Earring, La Vie en Rose, Black Book, Good Bye Lenin!, Match Point andThe Silence of Lorna.
