Synopsis: Revisioning Europe is among the few existing English language discussions of the films made by British novelist John Berger and Swiss film director Alain Tanner. It brings to light a political cinema that was both unsentimental about the possibilities of revolutionary struggle and unsparing in its critique of the European left, and at the same time optimistic about the ability of radicalism—while radical art—to transform the world. Jerry White argues that Berger and Tanner's work is preoccupied with ideas that were at the same time central to the Enlightenment and characteristically Swiss. Translations of previously unpublished essays by both Berger and Tanner are included as appendices.

About the Author: Jerry White is Canada Research Chair in European Studies at Dalhousie University. He is the author of The Radio Eye: Cinema in the North Atlantic, 1958-1988 and Of This Place and Elsewhere: The Films and Photography of Peter Mettler, editor of The Cinema of Canada, and co-editor of North of Everything: English-Canadian Cinema since 1980.
