Spaces in European CinemaeBook - 2000
How is space constructed in European cinema? What ideological or artistic concerns does space `narrate'? A study of space as background and the way it has been constructed and used as a topic in film. Examples from European Cinema are used to demonstrate how such space can be seen to contribute to the dynamics of the narrative and can be shown to play an important part in the development of a variety of considerations, both ideological and artistic. This is the only study to fully address the unique spatial power of cinema. Covering films from the 1920s right up to the present day, the racial, social and gendered `mappings' of the city and its private and public spaces are considered from this fresh perspective.
