Contemporary World Cinema by Shohini Chaudhuri

Book Description

Since the start of the 1990s, despite tougher competition than ever before from Hollywood, a rebirth and flourishing of cinema has been taking place in parts of Europe, the Middle East, East Asia and South Asia. This book provides an overview of the cinemas of these regions, interpreting some of the recent developments as strategic responses to globalisation. Highlighting transnational and cross-cultural structures, influences and themes, it offers: * A broad critical context for the study of contemporary world cinema, introducing key concepts and issues including modes of production and distribution. * Cultural and historical background for the cinemas of each region, with analyses of regional aesthetic styles and comparisons with Hollywood models. * Case studies of Scandinavian, Iranian, Hong Kong and Indian cinema. * Close analysis of twelve landmark films, including Thomas Vinterberg's Festen, Samira Makhmalbaf's The Apple, Wong Kar-Wai's In the Mood For Love, and Ashutosh Gowariker's Lagaan. Contemporary World Cinema is vital for students and teachers of film, media, cultural studies and modern languages, as well as general world cinema enthusiasts.

Cinema of the Dark Side by Shohini Chaudhuri Cinema of the Dark Side, Paperback (November 2014)

Explores how contemporary cinema treats state-sponsored atrocity, evoking multiple landscapes of state terror. Investigating the ethical potential of cinematic atrocity images, this book argues that while films help to create and confirm normative perceptions about atrocities, they can also disrupt those perceptions and build alternatives.

Feminist Film Theorists by Shohini Chaudhuri Feminist Film Theorists, Paperback (August 2006)

Focusing on the work of Laura Mulvey, Kaja Silverman, Teresa de Lauretis and Barbara Creed, this book explores how, since it began in the 1970s, feminist film theory has revolutionized the way that films and their spectators can be understood. It is useful for students of film theory and women's studies.
