Cinema of North Africa and the Middle East by Gonul Donmez-Colin

Book Description

"The Cinema of North Africa and the Middle East" contains twenty-four essays, each concerning an individual film, with a geographical scope that runs from Morocco all the way to Iran. The volume explores not just established film cultures such as those of Turkey and Israel, but also nascent cinemas such as "Palestine" and "Syria". Some of the selected films include "Cairo Station" (Egypt, 1958), "The Runner" (Iran, 1989), "Once Upon a Time, Beirut" (Lebanon, 1994), "Ten" (Iran, 2002) and "Uzak" (Turkey, 2003). With a preface by the Canne Palmes d'Or-winning director Abbas Kiarostami, "The Cinema of North Africa and the Middle East" unveils a diverse region of filmmaking of interest to all consumers of global cinema.
