Film and Urban Space traces recurring debates about what constitutes film's political potential and argues that the relation between film and urban space has been crucial to these debates and their historical transformations. The book demonstrates that certain recurring prescriptions - shooting on location, disrupting normalising time, experimenting with memory, interlinking the spaces of screen and cinema - draw on the relation between film and urban space as a kind of laboratory. As these prescriptions have been tested anew in different circumstances new opportunities and new limits invariably have been encountered, in part because of the dynamism of urban space.

A wide range of key films, from Dziga Vertov's 1928 Man with a Movie Camera to Jia Zhangke's 2008 24 City, are discussed in depth, each offering an argument for how the encounter between specific manifestations of modern urban space and politically engaged film strategies has served to challenge the status quo and stimulate critical thinking.

An insightful and thought-provoking read, Film and Urban Space presents scholars and advanced students in Film Studies with a compelling argument for the impact of urban space in creating film's critical political and ethical possibilities.

Book Description EDINBURGH UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2014. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This title traces the dynamic relationship between film and the city. How do film and urban space work together to challenge and forge our changing ideas of modern urban life? How does film intervene with what is erased or retained from the existing urban fabric? What are the possibilities and limits of contemporary utopic visions built into urban form? How does film itself work as a utopic space? How has the space of the cinema created a vibrant public space over the course of last century, and what is its future? These are some of the questions tackled in this book. Drawing on films as diverse as Man with a Movie Camera, Bicycle Thieves, Dogville, Safe, Los Angeles Plays Itself, Chungking Express and The Circle, the book identifies and analyses the major debates about the crucial historical relationship between film and the city to consider existing and future possibilities.
