In November we are giving away – Cinemas of the Other: A Personal Journey with Film-Makers from Iran and Turkey By Gönül Dönmez-Colin
An updated collection of recent interviews with filmmakers whose works represent trends in the film industries of Turkey and Iran, this new geospecific edition expands upon the earlier volume Cinemas of the Other: A Personal Journey with Film-Makers from the Middle East and Central Asia.
Following an introduction delineating the histories of the film industries of the countries of the Middle East, the book contains interviews stretching over a decade, which position the filmmakers and their creative concerns within the social or political context of their respective countries.
‘An unprecedented set of insights into the creative domain where the politics of creativity meet the poetics of emancipation; an exceedingly readable and informative book.’ – Film International
The winner will be drawn at the end of November.
Intellect are an independent academic publisher in the field of creative practice and popular culture. They have kindly donated books and journal subscriptions from their fantastic range of publications on film studies.
All proceeds from the draw will support the running of the film season which is a not for profit event.
