Contemporary Cinema and Neoliberal Ideology Paperback
Edited by Ewa Mazierska, Lars Kristensen
In this edited collection, an international ensemble of scholars examine what contemporary cinema tells us about neoliberal capitalism and cinema, exploring whether filmmakers are able to imagine progressive alternatives under capitalist conditions.
Individual contributions discuss filmmaking practices, film distribution, textual characteristics and the reception of films made in different parts of the world.
They engage with topics such as class struggle, debt, multiculturalism and the effect of neoliberalism on love and sexual behaviour.
Written in accessible, jargon-free language, Contemporary Cinema and Neoliberal Ideology is an essential text for those interested in political filmmaking and the political meanings of films.
