Ecocinema Theory and Practice (AFI Film Readers)


Ecocinema Theory and Practice (AFI Film Readers) Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The EcoCinema Reader is the first collection of its kind--an anthology that offers a comprehensive introduction to the rapidly growing field of eco-film criticism, a branch of critical scholarship that investigates cinema 's intersections with environmental understandings. It references seminal readings through cutting edge research and is designed as an introduction to the field as well as a source book. It defines ecocinema studies, sketches its development over the past twenty years, provides theoretical frameworks for moving forward, and presents eloquent examples of the practice of eco-film criticism through essays written by the field 's leading and emerging scholars. From Grizzly Man to The Day After Tomorrow and An Inconvenient Truth to March of the Penguins, the pieces in this collection comprehensively interrogate the breadth of ecocinema. It also directs readers to further study through lists of recommended readings, professional organizations, and relevant periodicals.
