Cinematic products in the twenty-first century increasingly emerge from, engage with, and are consumed in cross-cultural settings. While there have been a number of terms used to describe cinematic forms that do not bear allegiance to a single nation in terms of conceptualization, content, finance and/or viewership, this volume contends that "crossover cinema" is the most apt contemporary description for those aspects of contemporary cinema on which it focuses. This contention is provoked by an appreciation of the cross-cultural reality of our post-globalization twenty-first century world. This volume both outlines the history of usage of the term and grounds it theoretically in ways that emphasize the personal/poetic in addition to the political. Each of the three sections of the volume then considers crossover film from one of three perspectives: production, the texts themselves, and distribution and consumption.

This is the first-ever book on the rise of the new wave of independent Indian films that is revolutionising Indian cinema. Contemporary scholarship on Indian cinema so far has focused asymmetrically on Bollywood—India’s dominant cultural export. Reversing this trend, this book provides an in-depth examination of the burgeoning independent Indian film sector. It locates the new 'Indies' as a glocal hybrid film form—global in aesthetic and local in content. They critically engage with a diverse socio-political spectrum of ‘state of the nation’ stories; from farmer suicides, disenfranchised urban youth and migrant workers to monks turned anti-corporation animal rights agitators. This book provides comprehensive analyses of definitive Indie new wave films including Peepli Live (2010), Dhobi Ghat (2010), The Lunchbox (2013) and Ship of Theseus (2013). It explores how subversive Indies, such as polemical postmodern rap-musical Gandu (2010) transgress conventional notions of ‘traditional Indian values’, and collide with state censorship regulations. This timely and pioneering analysis shows how the new Indies have emerged from a middle space between India’s globalising present and traditional past. This book draws on in-depth interviews with directors, actors, academics and members of the Indian censor board, and is essential reading for anyone seeking an insight into a current Indian film phenomenon that could chart the future of Indian cinema.

This book brings together various theoretical approaches to Horror that have received consistent academic attention since the 1990s – abjection, disgust, cognition, phenomenology, pain studies – to make a significant contribution to the study of fictional moving images of mutilation and the ways in which human bodies are affected by those on the screen on three levels: representationally, emotionally and somatically. Aldana Reyes reads Horror viewership as eminently carnal, and seeks to articulate the need for an alternative model that understands the experience of feeling under corporeal threat as the genre’s main descriptor. Using recent, post-millennial examples throughout, the book also offers case studies of key films such as?Hostel,?[REC],?Martyrs?or?Ginger Snaps, and considers contemporary Horror strands such as found footage or 3D Horror.

Mobility and Migration in Film and Moving Image Art explores cinematic and artistic representations of migration and mobility in Europe from the 1990s to today. Drawing on theories of migrant and diasporic cinema, moving-image art, and mobility studies, Bayraktar provides historically situated close readings of films, videos, and cinematic installations that concern migratory networks and infrastructures across Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. Probing the notion of Europe as a coherent entity and a borderless space, this interdisciplinary study investigates the ways in which European ideals of mobility and fluidity are deeply enmeshed with forced migration, illegalization, and xenophobia. With a specific focus on distinct forms of mobility such as labor migration, postcolonial migration, tourism, and refugee mobilities, Bayraktar studies the new counter-hegemonic imaginations invoked by the work of filmmakers such as Ayşe Polat, Fatih Akin, Michael Haneke, and Tony Gatlif as well as video essays and installations of artists such as Kutluğ Ataman, Ursula Biemann, Ergin Çavuşoğlu, Maria Iorio and Raphaël Cuomo. Challenging aesthetic as well as national, cultural, and political boundaries, the works central to this book envision Europe as a diverse, inclusive, and unfixed continent that is reimagined from many elsewheres well beyond its borders.

Exploring Morality And Sexuality In Asian Cinema

This ground-breaking book explores the moral dimensions of sexual imagery in contemporary, general-release Asian films. It examines debates that arise over aesthetic styles and the cultural and traditional influences that determine the content and impact of these films. The social and regulatory environments for filmmakers across Asia reflect distinct national and cultural differences. In just the past decade, for instance, Indian cinema has rapidly moved from representations of coy and submissive female protagonists to highly eroticized leading ladies unafraid of flaunting their sexuality. On the other hand, the cinema emerging from the Chinese mainland has been much more circumspect in its representations of overt sexuality, at times in conflict with other Chinese cinemas from Hong Kong and Taiwan. This use of sexual imagery or morally questionable film content raises on-going debates into censorship and the use of state or industry controls to protect certain sectors of society from exposure to particular narratives or images. Film, like all forms of art, fulfils a number of aesthetic functions for local, regional and international audiences. As distribution and technological advances make Asian films more readily available across the globe, an understanding of the different aesthetics at play will enable readers of this book to recognize key cultural motifs in representations of onscreen sexuality and the surrounding controversies found in cinematic texts from Asia.

Mit einem Geleitwort von Stéphane Hessel und einem Nachwort von Bernd Witte! »Langsam durch belebte Straßen zu gehen, ist ein besonderes Vergnügen. Man wird überspült von der Eile der andern, es ist ein Bad in der Brandung.« So beginnt Franz Hessels Spazieren in Berlin, das 1929 erstmals erschien, und heute so nah am Zeitgeist ist wie damals: Als Flaneur schlendert Hessel durch das lärmende Berlin, läuft über Plätze, durch Straßen, Fabriken und Parks, besucht den Osten mit seinen Hinterhöfen und Markthallen, den Westen mit seinen Nachtcafés und macht die Berliner Stadtlandschaft in ihrem einzigartigen Zauber erlebbar.

Peter Biskind setzt die grandiose Hollywood-Chronik fort, die er mit seinem Bestseller Easy Riders, Raging Bulls begonnen hat. Ging es dort noch um die großen Autorenfilmer der 1970er - Scorsese, Altman, Coppola -, so hat sich Biskind nun die Independent-Filme der Neunziger vorgeknöpft. Streifen, die schon heute als Kultklassiker gelten (Pulp Fiction und Sex, Lies and Videotapes, Clerks und Reservoir Dogs) und die Macher, die hinter den Kulissen gewirkt haben: Da sind die Kultregisseure Quentin Tarantino und Steven Soderbergh, da ist Robert Redford, der charismatische, aber enigmatische Altstar, der das Sundance Festival lanciert hat. Und da sind die ebenso genialischen wie skrupellosen Gebrüder Weinstein, die ambitionierte Low-Budget-Filme an ein Massenpublikum herangeführt und ihre Filmfabrik Miramax dann an Disney verkauft haben. Biskind hat besessen recherchiert: Er schildert die schwierigsten Dreharbeiten, die wildesten Parties, die größten Egos, die härtesten Auseinandersetzungen, kurz: die besten Anekdoten aus mehr als einem Jahrzehnt Hollywood - und verliert doch nie das Gesamtbild aus den Augen. Denn letztlich ist DOWN AND DIRTY PICTURES ein Lamento: die klassische Story einer Alternativkultur, die auf dem Weg in den Mainstream ihre Ideale verrät
