an important archive collection of world cinema videos
A cineaste's delight ;-) This is the private collection of Professor Lucia Nagib. It comprises over 240 'art' films, from the 1970s & 80s from all leading nations outside the anglo-saxon world. All different, some quite esoteric. Price is under £3 each, many are completely unkown in the west and could be reissued. _x000D_* Google.... Lucia Nagib, Professor in Film, Director of the Centre for Film Aesthetics and Cultures (CFAC) "My main specialism is world cinema theory, history and geography, which I have explored through a novel approach in many publications, including my most recent single-authored book, World Cinema and the Ethics of Realism. My proposal consists in the adoption of a positive, democratic and inclusive approach to film studies, which rejects the usual binary division that posits world cinema against Hollywood, defining it instead as a polycentric phenomenon with peaks of creation in different places and periods. Once notions of a single centre and primacies are discarded, everything can be placed on the world cinema map on an equal footing, even Hollywood, which instead of a threat becomes a cinema among others. At the core of this proposal is the belief that different cinemas of the world can generate their own, original theories. In multicultural, multi-ethnic societies like ours, cinematic expressions from various origins cannot be seen as 'the other' for the simple reason that they are us. More interesting than their difference is, in most cases, their interconnectedness" * I'm sure potential buyers will appreciate all this ??*Free UK postage under 1/2 kilo, otherwise world wide as cheaply and securely as we can.* no-quibble refunds if requiredProduct Code:id:4067 S/loc:682 - 4 banana boxes
