Summary

Heavily revised and with a new-co-author, A History of Film , is a comprehensive international survey of the narrative fiction film from its beginnings to the present. In the book, the contributions of major film-producing countries, significant filmmakers, and their films are highlighted within social, artistic, economic, and technological contexts. This fifth edition constitutes a major revision and update over half the text is new! The new edition updates the book's historical coverage while considerably expanding it to incorporate women and minority filmmakers and audiences, avant-garde and documentary traditions, and the wide array of global filmmaking practices.
