Landscape and the Environment in Hollywood Film : The Green Machine, Hardback Book

Landscape and the Environment in Hollywood Film : The Green Machine Hardback

Part of the Palgrave Studies in Media and Environmental Communication series

Description

This book systematically explores how popular Hollywood film portrays environmental issues through various genres.

In so doing, it reveals the influence exerted by media consolidation and the drive for profit on Hollywood's portrayal of the natural landscape, which ultimately shapes how environmental problems and their solutions are presented to audiences.

Analysis is framed by a consideration of how cultural studies can make more theoretical and practical room for environmental concern, thereby expanding its capacity for critical examination.

The book begins by introducing the theoretical underpinning of the research as it relates to cultural studies, landscape, and genre.

In the chapters that follow, each genre is taken in turn, starting with popular animated family films and progressing through spy thrillers, eco-thrillers, science fiction, Westerns, superhero films, and drama.

This book is ideal for students and scholars in a variety of disciplines, including film, environmental studies, communication, political economy, and cultural studies.
