W0rld cinema through a noir lens
Co-edited with English colleague and film scholar Christopher Weedman, this edited scholarly collection will feature chapters that explore the ongoing usefulness of film noir as a lens through which to explore international cinema. Our goal is not to expand the noir canon but to recover lost nuances and give new life to specific classical era (1940s-1960s) films from diverse nations. Chapters include entries on films from Argentina, Czechoslovakia, France, Italy, Japan, Poland, Spain, Turkey, and the US. Forthcoming from Edinburgh University Press.
