European Film Theory

by

European Film Theory Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This new volume in the AFI Film Readers series presents a long overdue reassessment of European cinema and film theory, and explores how a new Europe and a new European cinema have informed one another. In this collection of newly commissioned essays, established and emerging film scholars including Thomas Elsaesser, Tom Conley, Warren Buckland, and Noel Carroll, explore a wide range of topics including the philosophical origins of European film theory, the challenges it poses to dominant interpretations of realism and theatricality in cinema, inquiries into the Europeanness of European film theory, its relationship with contemporary politics and culture, and the culture wars between Continental and Analytical film theory.

Synopsis:

European Film Theory explores the ?Europeanness? of European film theory, its philosophical origins, the ?culture wars? between ?Continental? and ?Analytical? film theory and philosophy, the major discursive and epistemological shifts in the history of Continental film theory, the relationship between Continental philosophy of art and philosophy of history and European film theory. Writing from a range of disciplines and perspectives, the contributors to this new volume in the AFI FILM READERS series offer fresh interpretations of European film theorists and illuminate the political potential of European film theory.
