The Other in Contemporary Migrant Cinema : Imagining a New Europe?, Hardback Book

The Other in Contemporary Migrant Cinema : Imagining a New Europe? Hardback


As a rapidly aging continent, Europe increasingly depends on the successful integration of migrants.

Unfortunately, contemporary political and media discourses observe and frequently also support the development of nationalist, eurosceptic and xenophobic reactions to immigration and growing multiethnicity.

Confronting this trend, European cinema has developed and disseminated new transcultural and postcolonial alternatives that might help to improve integration and community cohesion in Europe, and this book investigates these alternatives in order to identify examples of good practices that can enhance European stability.

While the cinematic spectrum is as wide and open as most notions of Europeanness, the films examined share a fundamental interest in the Other.

In this qualitative film analysis approach, particular consideration is given to British, French, German, and Spanish productions, and a comparison of multiethnic conviviality in Chicano cinema.
