This anthology of specially-commissioned essays introduces the film student to some of the central questions and debates that have concerned the development of film studies. Written by a team of noted scholars, the collection focuses on issues that confront us today, assessing the impact on the discipline of recent technological, cultural, and social developments; challenging received thinking, and reinventing film studies for the post-film era. In each of five thematic sections, early essays open up key problems, issues, and debates while a case study offers concrete examples of what various approaches can deliver. Covering all major topics and fully up-to-date, this reader will be a key text for all serious undergraduate and graduate students who want to understand where film is going in its second century.
