European Cinema after 1989: Cultural Identity and Transnational Production [First Edition]0230600247, 9780230600249
Description:This book brings post-Berlin Wall Europe and European cinema to full visibility and into the fray of current debates on cultural identity, transnational cinema, and postcolonialism. It presents new ways of reading post-1989 European film policy in relation to culture, ways that are crucial to rethinking Europe in its geopolitical and symbolic configuration. In particular, it addresses how the neglected strategies of coproduction articulate a supranational Europe and redefine European identity. By drawing on contemporary political, cultural, and philosophical discourses, Rivi offers pointed analyses of some of the recent most significant European films like Nostalghia, Underground, Land and Freedom, No Mans Land, Lamerica, La promesse, Code inconnu and Cach.
