A study of the burgeoning world cinema movement 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. It highlights transnational and cross-cultural structures, influences and themes. Contemporary World Cinema is vital for students and teachers of film, media, cultural studies and modern languages, as well as general world cinema enthusiasts.
