A N E W H I S TO RY OF GERMAN CINEMA

Edited by EWA MAZ IERSKA & MICHAEL GODDARD

Edited by JENNIFER M. KAPCZYNSK I & MICHAE L D. R ICHARDSON

Despite the opening up of Poland to global influences after the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 and the rise of transnational perspectives to the study of film, approaches to Polish cinema have remained largely within a resolutely national framework. Polish Cinema in a Transnational Context addresses this situation by examining the international reception of Polish films in Europe and North America, Polish international coproductions and the presence of Polish performers in foreign films, and the works of subversive émigré auteurs. $90.00/£60.00(s) March 2014 978 1 58046 468 0 26 b/w illus.; 344pp, 23.4 x 15.6 (9 x 6 inches), HB

This dynamic, event-centered collection of new essays offers a fresh understanding of the hundred-year history of German-language film. Shortlisted for the Willy Haas Prize, Cinefest Hamburg, November 2013.

LAS T F E ATUR E S 

East German Cinema’s Lost Generation REINHILD ST EINGRÖVER As the Berlin Wall was on the verge of collapse, a group of young East German filmmakers produced around thirty stylistically diverse films that, until recently, few people ever saw. Most of these films were lost in the political upheaval of the Wende, disappearing until the 2009 Wendeflicks festival in Los Angeles brought them back for an international audience. Drawing on a decade of archival research and interviews with the directors, writers, and editors of the films in question, Last Features is the story of these forgotten films.
