  • Brazil on Screenby Lucia Nagib

    I.B.Tauris 2007; US$ 32.00

    Two periods of Brazilian film history are particularly notable for their artistic momentum: the Cinema Novo movement of the 1960s and early ?70s, and the film revival from the mid 1990s onwards. What makes them especially strong, this book argues, is their utopian impulse. By adopting Utopia as a theme, as well as a method of film analysis, Lúcia Nagib... more...

    I.B.Tauris 2003; US$ 35.00

    Since the mid-1990s, Brazil has produced nearly 200 feature length films. Many of these have been received enthusiastically by audiences and critics and released worldwide.

Impure Cinema goes back to Bazin?s original title precisely for its defence of impurity, applying it, on the one hand, to cinema?s interbreeding with other arts and, on the other, to its ability to... more...

  • Theorizing World Cinemaby Lucia Nagib; Rajinder Dudrah; Chris Perriam

    I.B.Tauris 2011; US$ 31.00

    This innovative book is about the place of world cinema in the cultural imaginary. It also repositions world cinema in a wider discursive space than is usually the case and treats it as an object of theoretical enquiry, rather than as a commercial label. The editors and distinguished group of contributors offer a range of approaches and case studies... more...
