Transnational Cinema : An Introduction (Hardcover) (Steven Rawle)
About this item
This core teaching text provides a thorough overview of the recently emerged field of transnational film studies. Covering a range of approaches to analysing films about migrant, cross-cultural and cross-border experience, Steven Rawle demonstrates how film production has moved beyond clear national boundaries to become a product of border crossing finance and creative personnel. This comprehensive introduction brings together the key concepts and theories of transnational cinema, including genre, remakes, diasporic and exilic cinema, and the limits of thinking about cinema as a particularly national cultural artefact.
It is an excellent course companion for undergraduate students of Film, Cinema, Media and Cultural Studies studying transnational and global cinema, and provides both students and lovers of film alike with a strong grounding in this timely field of film studies.
