Co-edited by Dr. Lydia Papadimitriou (Film Studies, Liverpool John Moores University) and Dr. Yannis Tzioumakis (Communications and Media, University of Liverpool), the first collection of essays on Greek cinema to be published in English entitled “Greek Cinema: Texts, Histories, Identities” (Intellect publications) was successfully launched last week at King’s College, London.
Co-hosted by the Department of Film Studies and the Centre of Hellenic Studies at King’s College, the event was very well received by a sizeable audience. Presentations by the two editors were followed by brief talks from three of the contributors, and a very lively Q&A session.
Covering the silent era to the present, this wide-ranging collection of essays examines Greek cinema as an aesthetic, cultural, and political phenomenon with the potential to appeal to a diverse range of audiences. Using a range of methodological tools, the authors investigate the ever-shifting forms and meanings at work within Greece’s national cinema and locate it within the booming interdisciplinary study of European cinema at large.
Designed for undergraduate courses in film studies, this well-researched volume fills a substantial gap in the market for critical works on Greek cinema in English.
