Cinematic countrysides

edited by Fish Robert

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Considers the role that countrysides play in histories of cinema and their relationship to both popular and amateur forms of film production
  • Introduces the innovative idea of 'cinematic countrysides' to debates about 'cinematic space'
  • Case study examples of how ideas of 'countryside' are produced through different film genres and across different national traditions of cinema
  • Examines the relationship between cinema and the material transformation of rural spaces though the processes of commodification and cinematic display
  • Critically explores the way 'countrysides in film' frame key markers of social-spatial identity, including notions of masculinity, childhood, the city and nationhood
