With films such as Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (2000), The Motorcycle Diaries (2004), Oldboy (2003) and Good Bye Lenin (2003), the state and popularity of world cinema has rarely been healthier. Remapping World Cinema explores many of the key critical and theoretical approaches and debates, including race, stardom, post-colonialism as well as national cinemas' relationship with Hollywood. Covering a broad scope, the book examines the cinemas of Africa, East Asia, India, Latin, Central and South America as well as the various territories of Europe.
