Key Concepts in Cinema Studies

Key Concepts in Cinema Studies

by SusanHayward (Author)


This is an A-Z of the key critical terms in film studies, and aims to make film texts and analysis more accessible to the student. The entries include explanations of familiar concepts such as "realism" and "history", as well as covering more sophisticated constructs like "scophilia" and "gesturality". The text is aimed not just at the European film industry, but takes many of its entries from non-European and American cinema. It also includes terms related to the fields of practical film and video work. It is organized alphabetically with cross-references to related terms, and should be a useful study aid for all students of the cinema.
