"Cinema of the Other Europe: The Industry and Artistry of East Central European Film" is the first major study of the cinematic traditions of Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic, and Slovakia from 1945 to the present day. It explores the major schools of film-making and the main stages of development across the region during the period of state socialism up until the end of the Cold War as well as more recent transformations post-1989. The book examines how European cinema is still mostly synonymous with West European film and how the cinema of Eastern Europe is still largely excluded and under-explored. Including material on directors such as Istv?n Szab? ( "Mephisto"), Krzysztof Kieslowski ( "Dekalog, Three Colors Trilogy") and Jan Sver?k ( "Kolya"), this study of the 'other' European cinema thus constitutes a timely appraisal of film history and film studies debates.
