Download Cinemaps books, This beautifully illustrated atlas of beloved movies is an essential reference for cinephiles, fans of great films, and anyone who loves the art of mapmaking. Acclaimed artist Andrew DeGraff has created beautiful hand-painted maps of all your favorite films, from King Kong and North by Northwest to The Princess Bride, Fargo, Pulp Fiction, even The Breakfast Club—with the routes of major characters charted in meticulous cartographic detail. Follow Marty McFly through the Hill Valley of 1985, 1955, and 1985 once again as he races Back to the Future. Trail Jack Torrance as he navigates the corridors of the Overlook Hotel in The Shining. And join Indiana Jones on a globe-spanning journey from Nepal to Cairo to London on his quest for the famed Lost Ark. Each map is presented in an 9-by-12-inch format, with key details enlarged for closer inspection, and is accompanied by illuminating essays from film critic A. D. Jameson, who speaks to the unique geographies of each film.

Border Cinema

by Monica Hanna, Border Cinema Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Border Cinema books, The rise of digital media and globalization’s intensification since the 1990s have significantly refigured global cinema’s form and content. The coincidence of digitalization and globalization has produced what this book helps to define and describe as a flourishing border cinema whose aesthetics reflect, construct, intervene in, denature, and reconfigure geopolitical borders. This collection demonstrates how border cinema resists contemporary border fortification processes, showing how cinematic media have functioned technologically and aesthetically to engender contemporary shifts in national and individual identities while proposing alternative conceptions of these identities to those promulgated by the often restrictive current political rhetoric and ideologies that represent a backlash to globalization.

Materiality And Popular Culture

by Anna Malinowska, Materiality And Popular Culture Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Materiality And Popular Culture books, This book critically approaches contemporary meanings of materiality and discuses ways in which we understand, experience, and engage with objects through popular culture in our private, social and professional lives. Appropriating Arjun Appadurai’s famous phrase: "the social life of things", with which he inspired scholars to take material culture more seriously and, as a result, treat it as an important and revealing area of cultural studies, the book explores the relationship between material culture and popular practices, and points to the impact they have exerted on our co-existence with material worlds in the conditions of late modernity.

The Routledge Companion To New Cinema History

by Daniel Biltereyst, The Routledge Companion To New Cinema History Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Routledge Companion To New Cinema History books, The Routledge Companion to New Cinema History presents the most recent approaches and methods in the study of the social experience of cinema, from its origins in vaudeville and traveling exhibitions to the multiplexes of today. Exploring its history from the perspective of the cinemagoer, the study of new cinema history examines the circulation and consumption of cinema, the political and legal structures that underpinned its activities, the place that it occupied in the lives of its audiences and the traces that it left in their memories. Using a broad range of methods from the statistical analyses of box office economics to ethnography, oral history, and memory studies, this approach has brought about an undisputable change in how we study cinema, and the questions we ask about its history. This companion examines the place, space, and practices of film exhibition and programming; the questions of gender and ethnicity within the cinematic experience; and the ways in which audiences gave meaning to cinemagoing practices, specific films, stars, and venues, and its operation as a site of social and cultural exchange from Detroit and Laredo to Bandung and Chennai. Contributors demonstrate how the digitization of source materials and the use of digital research tools have enabled them to map previously unexplored aspects of cinema’s business and social history and undertake comparative analysis of the diversity of the social experience of cinema across regional, national, and continental boundaries. With contributions from leading scholars in the field, The Routledge Companion to New Cinema History enlarges and refines our understanding of cinema’s place in the social history of the twentieth century.

Die Geschichte Der Welt

by Ewald Frie, Die Geschichte Der Welt Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Die Geschichte Der Welt books, Ewald Frie erzählt die Geschichte der Welt erstmals ganz voraussetzungslos aus einer wahrhaft globalen Perspektive. Athen rückt so an den Rand, aber das traumhaft schöne Kilwa in Afrika wird niemand vergessen, der dieses mit wunderbarer Leichtigkeit geschriebene Buch gelesen hat. Die Geschichte der Welt wird bis heute von Europa aus erzählt. Höchste Zeit für einen frischen Blick: Australien wurde vom Homo sapiens früher besiedelt als Europa. Menschen fuhren Tausende Kilometer über den offenen Pazifik, als die Römer noch ängstlich an der Küste entlangsegelten. Die Pyramiden und Städte Amerikas können es mit Babylon und Ägypten aufnehmen. Und während Westeuropa in der Neuzeit Glaubenskriege führte, erstreckte sich ein multikultureller Handelsraum von Ungarn bis Südindien. Aber natürlich geht es auch um die Barbaren im Abendland: Ewald Frie erzählt von ihren Entdeckungen und Eroberungen, ihren Revolutionen und Kriegen, die die Welt verändert haben. Seitdem wird unser Planet zu einer globalen Megacity, in der sich die Reichen von den Armen abschotten und trotzdem alle miteinander vernetzt sind. Und die Megacitys dieser Welt liegen heute da, wo es schon vor Jahrtausenden die größten Städte gab: außerhalb Europas.
