About this Book

A Companion to Eastern European Cinemas showcases twenty-five essays written by established and emerging film scholars that trace the history of Eastern European cinemas and offer an up-to-date assessment of post-socialist film cultures.

  • Showcases critical historical work and up-to-date assessments of post-socialist film cultures
  • Features consideration of lesser known areas of study, such as Albanian and Baltic cinemas, popular genre films, cross-national distribution and aesthetics, animation and documentary
  • Places the cinemas of the region in a European and global context
  • Resists the Cold War classification of Eastern European cinemas as "other" art cinemas by reconnecting them with the main circulation of film studies
  • Includes discussion of such films as Taxidermia, El Perro Negro, 12:08 East of Bucharest Big Tõll, and Breakfast on the Grass and explores the work of directors including Tamás Almási, Walerian Borowczyk, Roman Polanski, Jerzy Skolimowski, Andrzej ?u?awski, and Karel Vachek amongst many others
