East, West and Centre : Reframing Post-1989 European Cinema Hardback

Edited by Michael Gott, Todd Herzog


This book re-examines notions of East and West in contemporary European cinema.

In East, West and Centre the world's leading scholars in the field assemble to consider the ways in which notions such as East and West, national and transnational, central and marginal are being rethought and reframed in contemporary European cinema.

Assessing the state of post-1989 European cinema, from (co)production and reception trends to filmic depictions of migration patterns, economic transformations and socio-political debates over the past and the present, they address increasingly intertwined cinema industries that are both central (France and Germany) and marginal in Europe (Romania, Bulgaria, Lithuania).

It is the most comprehensive investigation of Central European cinema in the early 21st century.

Contributions address recent films from or about Bulgaria, France, Germany, Lithuania, and Romania.

It aims to introduce readers to new films and directors from different national and transnational cinemas.

It is an essential read for those interested in wider European studies, as well as students and scholars in film and media studies.
