Poland Daily : Economy, Work, Consumption and Social Class in Polish Cinema, Hardback Book

Poland Daily : Economy, Work, Consumption and Social Class in Polish Cinema Hardback

Description

Like many Eastern European countries, Poland has seen a succession of divergent economic and political regimes over the last century, from prewar "embedded capitalism," through the state socialism of the Soviet era, to the present neoliberal moment.

Its cinema has been inflected by these changing historical circumstances, both mirroring and resisting them.

This volume is the first to analyze the entirety of the nation's film history-from the reemergence of an independent Poland in 1918 to the present day-through the lenses of political economy and social class, showing how Polish cinema documented ordinary life while bearing the hallmarks of specific ideologies.
