About this book

Mediations of Disruption in Post-Conflict Cinema is a transdisciplinary volume that addresses the cinematic mediation of a wide range of conflicts. From World War II and its aftermath to the exploration of colonial and post-colonial experiences and more recent forms of terrorism, it debates the possibilities, constraints and efficacy of the discursive practices this mediation entails. Despite its variety and amplitude in scope and width, the innovative and singular aspect of the book lies in the fact that the essays give voice to a variety of regions, issues, and filmmaking processes that tend either to remain on the outskirts of the publishing world and/or to be granted only partial visibility in volumes of regional cinema.

Reviews

“Mediations of Disruption in Post-Conflict Cinema delivers on its promise to present analyses of the representation in cinema of diverse types of conflict from a wide range of academic perspectives, whilst always considering the expressive specificity of a medium which, due to its complexity and effectiveness, may be used to promote criticism, clarification and revision of concepts (among them, those of conflict and post-conflict), but also to shape sometimes necessary and mystifying narratives.” (João Pedro Vicente Faustino, Portuguese Studies, Vol. 34 (02), 2018)
