Crossing New Europe by Ewa Mazierska
Book DescriptionAlthough a long-established and influential genre, this is the first comprehensive study of the European road cinema. "Crossing New Europe" investigates this tradition, its relationship with the American road movie and its aesthetic forms. It examines such crucial issues as individual and national identity crises, and phenomena such as displacement, diaspora, exile, migration, nomadism, and tourism in postmodern, post-Berlin Wall Europe. Drawing on the work of Said, Hall, Shields, Urry, Bauman, Deleuze and Guattari and other critical theorists, "Crossing New Europe" adopts a broad interpretation of 'Europe' and discusses directors who have long been associated with the road movie, such as "Wim Wenders" ("Alice in the Cities", "Lisbon Story") and "Aki Kaurismaki" ("Leningrad Cowboys Go America!"); authors with a distinctive vision of the road, such as Eric Rohmer, Werner Herzog and Patrick Keiller; and more recent contributions such as "Morven Callar", "Calendar", "Code Unknown", "Dear Diary", and "The Last Resort".

Books By Author Ewa Mazierska
Relocating Popular Music, Hardback (July 2015)
Relocating Popular Music uses the lens of colonialism and tourism to analyse types of music movements, such as transporting music from one place or historical period to another, hybridising it with a different style and furnishing it with new meaning. It discusses music in relation to music video, film, graphic arts, fashion and architecture.
Marx at the Movies, Hardback (September 2014)
Marx and the Moving Image approaches cinema from a Marxist perspective. It argues that the supposed 'end of history', marked by the comprehensive triumph of capitalism and the 'end of cinema', calls for revisiting Marx's writings in order to analyse film theories, histories and practices.
Falco and Beyond, Paperback (April 2014)
Falco and Beyond is devoted to the most popular Austrian song-writer, singer and rapper of the twentieth century and one of the most successful European singers of all time.
Work in Cinema, Hardback (December 2013)» View all books by Ewa Mazierska
Cinema frequently depicts various types of work, but this representation is never straightforward. It depends on and reflects many factors, especially the place and time the film is made and the type of audience it addresses. Here, the contributors employ transnational and transhistorical perspectives to compare filmic depictions of work.
