COMPREHENSIVE COVERAGE

The fifth edition features the work of major filmmakers—from D. W. Griffith, Sergei Eisenstein and John Ford to Ikira Kurosawa, Satyajit Ray, Jean-Luc Godard and Jane Campion—and an international scope, providing analysis of most major movements in cinema, from expressionism, film noir and das neue Kino to the French “New Wave,” Dogme 95, Bollywood and “Nollywood,” among many others.

CONTEMPORARY SCHOLARSHIP

The text incorporates contemporary scholarship throughout and offers a superior overview of recent developments in cinema today. Chapter 21, "The Digital Domain," has been substantially revised to extend coverage of the digital innovations in cinema beyond Hollywood film production, including its impacts on film distribution and consumption, viewing behaviours and independent filmmaking. A new chapter (Chapter 22: A Global Cinema?) considers the ways in which digital innovations have facilitated—and may continue to expand—the possibilities for a more global cinematic landscape.

BOLD DESIGN AND STREAMLINED PRESENTATION


A History of Narrative Film is now presented in a striking four-colour design, rich with half- and full-page photo layouts. Now 20% shorter than the previous edition, this fifth edition is more approachable and enjoyable than ever before.
