Postcolonial Film: History, Empire, Resistance examines films of the later twentieth and early twenty-first centuries from postcolonial countries around the globe. In the mid twentieth century, the political reality of resistance and decolonization lead to the creation of dozens of new states, forming a backdrop to films of that period. Towards the centurya€™s end and at the dawn of the new millennium, film continues to form a site for interrogating colonization and decolonization, though against a backdrop that is now more neo-colonial than colonial and more culturally imperial than imperial. This volume explores how individual films emerged from and commented on postcolonial spaces and the building and breaking down of the European empire. Each chapter is a case study examining how a particular film from a postcolonial nation emerges from and reflects that nationa€™s unique postcolonial situation. This analysis of one nationa€™s struggle with its coloniality allows each essay to investigate just what it means to be postcolonial.He presented a paper on Abbas Kiarostami at the 2005 conference of the Southwest Texas Popular Culture Association, ... of more than fifteen books, including FranAsois Truffaut and Friends: Modernism, Sexuality, and the Art of Adaptation (Rutgers, 2006); ...
