The Cinematic City

David Clarke

1stPublisher: RoutledgeFormat: Paperback

Cities possess a cinematic quality instilled with character ranging from bustling excitement to shadowy romance. What makes the city such a magnetic place and how has cinema shaped our view of the city?Offering thought-provoking insight into the connections between screen- and cityscape, “The Cinematic City” exploring genres, historical periods, and urban locales, to link the key dimensions of film and urban theory. From early cinema to today's politics of place, to forms of identity surrounding films by Black directors, the contributors draw on the theoretical insights of Baudrillard, Foucault, Lacan, and others to show how the city has been undeniably shaped by the cinematic form, and how cinema owes much of its nature to the historical development of urban space.
