New Book: Greek Cinema and Migration 1991-2016

Greek Cinema and Migration provides a response to urgent calls to comprehend the cultural impact of immigration in Greece, and to determine the capacity of contemporary Greek cinema to challenge the logic of Fortress Europe. Placing contemporary Greek cinema within the context of European film production and transnational cinema, the book explores the fascination of Greek filmmakers with migration, mobility, borders and identity, between 1991 and 2016. With case studies of films such as The Suspended Step of the Stork (1991), The Way to the West (2003), Man at Sea (2011) and many more, this ground-breaking book provides an in-depth understanding of contemporary Greek cinema and its direct correlation to the country's ongoing struggles to implement European modernity.
