Book Description

Transnational Cinema: The Film Reader provides an overview of the key concepts and debates within the developing field of transnational cinema.

Bringing together seminal essays from a wide range of sources, this volume engages with films that fashion their narrative and aesthetic dynamics in relation to more than one national or cultural community. The reader is divided into four sections:

  • From National to Transnational Cinema
  • Global Cinema in the Digital Age
  • Motion Pictures: Film, Migration and Diaspora
  • Tourists and Terrorists.
