East EuropeeBook - 2011
"Since the 1970s, the works of film-makers from Eastern and East Central Europe -- among them, Krzysztof Kieâslowski, Bâela Tarr, Istvâan Szabâo, and Jiérâi Menzel -- have experienced an international upsurge in popularity. Charting the trends of the national cinemas of Poland, Hungary, and Yugoslavia, as well as the lesser-known industries of Serbia, Slovakia and Romania, this new volume in the Directory of World Cinema series explores important genres in the cinema of Eastern and East Central Europe, including war films, new wave, comedies, and surrealist art cinema, with essays on the most prolific filmmakers, in-depth reviews of key titles, and suggested resources for further study."--Provided by publisher.
