From the Back Cover:

This uniquely engaging and lively textbook provides a comprehensive introduction to international film, from the golden age of European cinema to the contemporary blockbusters of India and Asia, and the post-World War II emergence of global film culture. Providing students with basic background information on the home cultures and auteurs of world cinema, this engrossing text allows them to appreciate the significance of each film on its own terms.

In each chapter, World on Film highlights the intersections between students' previous experiences with Hollywood and other mainstream film, and their new encounters with films from other cultures. Through in-depth discussions of individual films, and explanations of how these fit within the specific filmic and cultural history, Nochimson introduces sophisticated theories and concepts in clear and straightforward language. Including chapter summaries, key terms, discussion questions, suggestions for further reading, and illustrated with provocative film stills throughout, this comprehensive introduction demonstrates that cinema from other cultures and in other languages isn’t so foreign after all.
