Contemporary Women's Cinema, Global Scenarios And Transnational Contexts

Details

The anthology explores contemporary women’s cinema in relation to issues related to gender and globalization. The anthology gathers scholars from several parts of the world – from Italy, the USA, Turkey, Iran, Greece, New Zealand, Argentina, Germany and Canada. Such a global perspective is mirrored in the book’s content: the essays consider women’s production in the domain of cinema by looking at various films and filmmakers around the globe and by tackling the relation between national, transnational and global contexts in film production. What comes out is a multifaceted picture showing that women filmmakers, and especially non- Western filmmakers, are key social actors able to narrate the complexities of the current geopolitical condition and of its subjects.
