This book crosses the conventional border between the analysis of on-screen and off-screen intersections of law and cinema.nbsp; It not only addresses the representation of law on screen (for example, through discussions of how lawyers, police, and prisons are depicted, or how courtroom sequences function as narratives), but also focuses on how the state shapes and regulates cinema.nbsp; The volume addresses the distinct contexts of China, India, Japan, Korea, the Philippines, and Vietnam, along with an integrative introduction that puts the essays and themes into context for scholars and students alike.
Mark Sidel is Professor of Law, Faculty Scholar, and Lauridsen Family Fellow at the University of Iowa.
