Will Higbee

Published by Edinburgh University Press

Traditions in World Cinema

  • A comprehensive overview of the key developments in Maghrebi-French and North African émigré filmmaking in France since the 2000s: counter-heritage cinema and the memorialisation of France's colonial past; journey narratives and the myth of return; the 'mainstreaming' of Maghrebi-French directors and stars; representations of Islam.
  • Detailed case studies of key films from the 2000s that have yet to receive scholarly attention, such as Hors-la-loi, Dernier maquis and Vénus noire.
  • An in-depth analysis of trends in production, distribution and exhibition as they relate to Maghrebi-French and North African émigré filmmakers in the 2000s.
