Description - The Cinema of the Balkans by Dina Iordanova

The latest in the "24 Frames" series, "The Cinema of the Balkans" contains 24 essays, each on an individual, select film from the Balkan region (former Yugoslavia - Serbia, Macedonia, Bosnia, Montenegro, Croatia and Slovenia; Bulgaria, Greece, Romania, and Albania). The collection highlights some of the most important films that represent the rich and diverse culture of the Balkans and reveals the stylistic and thematic affinities that characterize the cinemas of a region that is often perceived as a disconnected cultural space. Some of the selected films include: "Stella" (Greece, 1955), "The Four Seasons of the Law" (Greece, 1999), "Goat's Horn" (Bulgaria, 1972), "When I am Dead and Pale" (Yugoslavia/Serbia, 1969), "The Red Horse" (Yugoslavia/Macedonia, 1984), "Stone Wedding" (Romania, 1971), and "Walter Defends Sarajevo" (Yugoslavia/Bosnia, 1972).
