9780748625369: The Cinema of Small Nations

Within cinema studies there has emerged a significant body of scholarship on the idea of 'National Cinema' but there has been a tendency to focus on the major national cinemas. Less developed within this field is the analysis of what we might term minor or small national cinemas, despite the increasing significance of these small entities with the international domain of moving image production, distribution and consumption.

The Cinema of Small Nations is the first major analysis of small national cinemas, comprising twelve case studies of small national--and sub national--cinemas from around the world, including Ireland, Denmark, Iceland, Scotland, Bulgaria, Tunisia, Burkina Faso, Cuba, Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong and New Zealand. Written by an array of distinguished and emerging scholars, each of the case studies provides a detailed analysis of the particular cinema in question, with an emphasis on the last decade, considering both institutional and textual issues relevant to the national dimension of each cinema. While each chapter contains an in-depth analysis of the particular cinema in question, the book as a whole provides the basis for a broader and more properly comparative understanding of small or minor national cinemas, particularly with regard to structural constraints and possibilities, the impact of globalization and internationalisation, and the role played by economic and cultural factors in small-nation contexts.

Review:

The introduction offers an excellent conceptual framework to situate the case studies... The strength of the volume lies in its multilevel analysis: going beyond, but not excluding, textual analysis. The reader gets a detailed and balanced overview of the major issues of film industry and culture within a wide variety of small nations! The collection is a timely and important contribution to the study of national and global cinemas and a highly recommendable read for a wide audience. It provides a view on a wide variety of national cinemas worldwide. -- Philippe Meers, University of Antwerp Historical Journal of Film, Radio and Television The introduction offers an excellent conceptual framework to situate the case studies...
