ASIA Summary: "This book explores the range and dynamism of contemporary Asian cinemas, covering East Asia (China, Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan), Southeast Asia (Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia), South Asia (Bollywood), and West Asia (Iran), in order to discover what is common about them and to engender a theory or concept of "Asian Cinema". It goes beyond existing work which provides a field survey of Asian cinema, probing more deeply into the field of Asian Cinema, arguing that Asian Cinema constitutes a separate pedagogical subject, and putting forward an alternative cinematic paradigm. The book covers "styles", including the works of classical Asian Cinema masters, and specific genres such as horror films, and Bollywood and Anime, two very popular modes of Asian Cinema; "spaces", including artistic use of space and perspective in Chinese cinema, geographic and personal space in Iranian cinema, the private "erotic space" of films from South Korea and Thailand, and the persistence of the family unit in the urban spaces of Asian big cities in many Asian films; and "concepts" such as Pan-Asianism, Orientalism, Nationalism and Third Cinema. The rise of Asian nations on the world stage has been coupled with a growing interest, both inside and outside Asia, of Asian culture, of which film is increasingly an indispensable component--this book provides a rich, insightful overview of what exactly constitutes Asian Cinema." -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Includes bibliographic references and index; Includes filmography ISBN: 9781138815780 Contents: pt.

This book also offers new approaches to understanding Australian cinema, and show how Australian culture and society changed during the period of Chauvel's work. Running through these changes, however, are continuities based on Australia's status as an 'import culture' and the consequent frailties of its cultural identity."

They discover that the more the social, political, and economic conditions worsen and chaos and pain prevail , the more Palestinian cinema becomes involved with the national struggle. As expected, Palestinian cinema has unfolded its national narrative against the Israeli narrative. The reflection of the Israeli in Palestinian cinema is one more harsh and painful testimony to the resentment and hostility between the two peoples, who share a common patch of earth and landscape.

Paula Rabinowitz discusses the ways in which these four media shaped truth-claims and political agency over the decades: in the 1930s about poverty, labor and popular culture during the depression; in the 1960s, about the Vietnam War, racism, work and the counterculture; and in the 1980s, about feminist and gay critiques of gender, history, narrative and cinema...Rabinowitz argues that the gendering ov vision that occurs when narratives conform to conventional genres profoundly affects the relation of documentarian to subject. She goes on to define this gendering of vision in documentary as an ethnographic process. Ultimately, this polemical study challenges the construction of the spectato in psychoanalytic film theory, and articulates a new model for theorizing power relations in culture and history." -- taken from back cover.

By integrating the music of Beethoven, Mahler, and others into their films, directors such as Fassbinder, Kluge, and Syderberg consciously called attention to its cultural significance. Through this music their films could reference and, in some cases, explore an embedded cultural tradition that included German nationalism and the rise of Nazism, especially during a period when German films were gaining international attention for the first time since the 1920s. Classical music conditioned the responses of German audiences in the 1970s and 1980s and was, in turn, reinterpreted in new cinematic contexts. In this pioneering volume, Hillman enriches our understanding of the powerful effects of music in cinema and the aesthetic and dramatic concerns of postwar German filmmakers."
