How is space constructed in European Cinema? What ideological or artistic concerns does space 'narrate'?
This is one of the few studies of its kind to explore such questions and the only text to fully address the unique spatial power of the cinema. Covering films of the 1920s right up to those of the 1990s; racial, social and gendered 'mappings' of the city and its private and public spaces are considered from a fresh perspective.
The volume includes special contributions from scholars right across Europe who focus on previously neglected areas such as news and municipal cinema as well as the canon of key European films. Offering a plurality of critical approaches, the text interweaves national cinema with specific genre studies and documents the vision of individual film-makers.
Fully illustrated with a comprehensive filmography and bibliography, this is a significant work for use in the study of Modern Languages or film. Spaces in European cinema is the product of the Research Centre of European Cinema at Middlesex University.
