Auteur's Alternatives to Hollywood: A Teacher's Guide is aimed explicitly at those requiring a short, sharp exposure to the cinemas of France, India and East Asia. The aim is both to expand the understanding of the cinemas -- with particular reference to the term 'New Wave' -- while also discovering new films to widen Film Studies teaching in general. Each of the three chapters includes a historical overview of the national/regional cinema under discussion, in depth case studies of representative films and film-makers -- including Les Quatre cents coups (The 400 Blows), Amélie, the films of Wong Kar-wai (Chungking Express, 2046) and Mohabbatein -- and extensive bibliographies, filmographies to signpost further investigation and advice on teaching approaches.
