Class in 1970s American Cinema

Derek Nystrom

  • Presents a major look at an under-explored strand of American film, as class dynamics in cinema have received surprisingly little attention from critics and scholars
  • Offers a new take on the debates within cinema studies on the development of "post-classical" style in the New Hollywood
  • Combines history, cultural studies and cinema studies: through a series of films, Nystrom re-tells the story of various social and political events of the 1970s- the decline of the New Left and counterculture, the re-emergence of the South as the Sunbelt, and the rise of the women's and gay liberation movements
  • Discusses labor relations within the film industry during the 1960s and 1970s
