Film and Urban Space : Critical Possibilities
- ÜRÜNÜN BULUNDUĞU ŞUBELERİMİZ
Reading films as diverse as Man with a Movie Camera (1929), Bicycle Thieves (1948), Chungking Express (1994), The Circle (2000), Dogville (2003), Los Angeles Plays Itself (2003), and Safe (2012), this study identifies and analyzes major debates in the crucial historical relationship between film and the city.
Considering existing and future possibilities, the text uses film to broadly discuss how film and urban space work together to challenge and forge our changing ideas of modern urban life, as well as how film intervenes with what is erased or retained from the existing urban fabric and how film itself works as a utopic space. The volume investigates the possibilities and limits of contemporary utopic visions built into urban forms and the role of theaters in creating vibrant public spaces that now face uncertain outcomes. Written for general readers and advanced scholars, this volume has vast applications for research in film and media studies, urban studies, and cultural geography.
