The Films of Aki Kaurismaki : Ludic Engagements Hardback
Edited by Thomas (University of Sussex, UK) Austin
Despite creating an extensive and innovative body of work over the last 30 years, Aki Kaurismaki remains relatively neglected in Anglophone scholarship.
This international collection of original essays aims to redress such neglect by assembling diverse critical inquiries into Kaurismaki's oeuvre.
The first anthology on Kaurismaki to be published in English, it offers a range of voices responding to his politically and aesthetically compelling cinema.
Deploying various methodologies to explore multiple facets of his work, The Films of Aki Kaurismaki will come to be seen as the definitive book on Kaurismaki.
