The Routledge Companion to World Cinema explores and examines a global range of films and filmmakers, their movements and audiences, comparing their cultural, technological and political dynamics, identifying the impulses that constantly reshape the form and function of the cinemas of the world. Each of the forty chapters provides a survey of a topic, explaining why the issue or area is important, and critically discussing the leading views in the area. Designed as a dynamic forum for forty-three world-leading scholars, this companion contains significant expertise and insight and is dedicated to challenging complacent views of hegemonic film cultures and replacing outmoded ideas about production, distribution and reception. It offers both a survey and an investigation into the condition and activity of contemporary filmmaking worldwide, often challenging long-standing categories and weighted—often politically motivated—value judgements, thereby grounding and aligning the reader in an activity of remapping which is designed to prompt rethinking.

This title is part of the 'Directory of World Cinema' series. It includes contributions from some of the leading academics in the field. It features film recommendations from a range of genres for those interested in watching more Turkish cinema. It includes full colour illustrations. It features comprehensive filmography as an index in the first English-language directory of Turkish films. Since the 1990s, filmmakers in Turkey have increasingly explored notions of gender, genre, cultural memory, and national and transnational identity. Taking these themes as its starting point, this book - the first English-language directory of Turkish films - provides an extensive historical overview of the country's cinema since the early 1920s. In chapters organized by genre - such as fantasy and science fiction, contemporary blockbusters, women's films, Istanbul films, and transnational or accented cinema - leading scholars of Turkish cinema offer reflections on the country's most important film movements and filmmakers.
