Surviving Images

Cinema, War, and Cultural Memory in the Middle East

Kamran Rastegar

  • Fills a gap in the critical literature on both Middle Eastern cinemas (including North Africa) and the cultural memory of conflict
  • Presents a cohesive and informative narrative of cinematic production in the Middle East
  • Expands the purview of trauma studies to compare it with other contexts of suffering and violence as they emerge in the postcolonial world
