A History of Film
Heavily revised and with a new-co-author, A History of Film, is a comprehensive international survey of the narrative fiction film from its beginnings to the present. In this book, the contributions of major film-producing countries, significant filmmakers, and their films are highlighted within social, artistic, economic, and technological contexts. This fifth edition constitutes a major revision and update - over half the book is new! The new edition updates the book's historical coverage while considerably expanding it to incorporate women and minority filmmakers and audiences, avant-garde and documentary traditions, and the wide array of global filmmaking practices. Illustrations from frame enlargements appear throughout. For film enthusiasts, or anyone interested in the history of film.
