About this book

Cinema, Cross-Cultural Collaboration, and Criticism provides a platform for a new politics of criticism, a collaborative ethos for a different kind of relationship to cross-cultural cinema that invites further conversations between filmmakers and audiences, indigenous and others.

Davinia Thornley is Senior Lecturer in the Media, Film, and Communication Department at the University of Otago, New Zealand.

Reviews

"Davinia Thornley presents a detailed and logical exploration of cross-cultural filmmaking practices. Her description of 'collaborative criticism', bringing together diverse ways of knowing and working, is entirely persuasive, and her instantiation of transnational and global perspectives are of the current critical moment. This is a very fine book." - Arnold Krupat, Sarah Lawrence College, USA
