Films on Ice : Cinemas of the Arctic Paperback / softback

Edited by Scott Mackenzie, Anna Westerstahl Stenport

Part of the Traditions in World Cinema series


The first book to address the vast diversity of Northern circumpolar cinemas from a transnational perspective, Films on Ice presents the region as one of great and previously overlooked cinematic diversity.

With chapters on polar explorer films, silent cinema, documentaries, ethnographic and indigenous film, gender and ecology, as well as Hollywood and the USSR's uses and abuses of the Arctic, this book provides a groundbreaking account of Arctic cinemas from 1898 to the present and radically alters stereotypical views of the Arctic region.
