Description - Politics in Contemporary European Cinema by Mike Wayne
Does contemporary European cinema reflect the drive for political and economic integration and recent trends in globalisation? The author identifies some key themes pertinent to a study of the contemporary cultural and political dynamics of European cinema from the mid 1980s, including the fall of the Berlin wall and the end of the Soviet Empire. Throughout the book issues are raised that question European culture and the nature of national cinema, including; the cultural relationship with Hollywood; debates over cultural plurality and diversity; the disintegration of nation states along the eastern flank; postcolonial travels and the hybridisation of the national formation.
