World On Film: An Introduction is out now
World on Film: An Introduction, the latest book from film critic Martha P. Nochimson, tackles a seemingly impossible task: introducing readers to historical and current international cinema. That it does so with such ease is no mean feat. The book features close readings of films from just every part of the globe; explorations of the narrative and visual styles that both separate and join cinemas from different cultures; and examinations of individual directors’ work. It also contains over 80 film stills, and a companion website for instructors. This is a book that can be enjoyed by film students, professors, filmmakers, and fans. Here’s what a few of her colleagues have to say:
‘Lively and readable…’ – Linda Mizejewksi, Ohio State University
‘… and expertly guided tour through both the leading movements in international cinema and the new movie-watching habits [viewers] need… ‘ – Thomas Leitch, University of Delaware
‘… provides a logical and engaging framework for student learning, with substantive, imaginative questions and project ideas that encourage further research…’ – Cynthia Lucia, Associate Professor and Director of Film and Media Studies, Rider University
