Heavily revised and with a new-co-author, A History of Film, is a comprehensive international survey of the narrative fiction film from its beginnings to the present. In this book, the contributions of major film-producing countries, significant filmmakers, and their films are highlighted within social, artistic, economic, and technological contexts. This fifth edition constitutes a major revision and update - over half the book is new! The new edition updates the book's historical coverage while considerably expanding it to incorporate women and minority filmmakers and audiences, avant-garde and documentary traditions, and the wide array of global filmmaking practices. Illustrations from frame enlargements appear throughout. For film enthusiasts, or anyone interested in the history of film.

Book Description:

This is a history of film. Since the first edition of this book, an increasing amount of historical research, especially on the American film, has appeared. Some of it has centered on the very early years in an effort to understand what the film forms and contents of the first decade actually were. In the revisions of this book an attempt has been made to incorporate the findings of contemporary research. At the same time, the method and basic structure of the original edition have been preserved.
