Description - Projecting the Past by Maria Wyke
Projecting the Past analyses the ways in which the Hollywood and Italian film industries have resurrected ancient Rome to address present concerns. Through the case studies of Spartacus, Cleopatra, Nero and Pompeii, the book explores cinema's use of the past to excavate present issues of nationhood, colonialism, gender and cinema itself.
