Naficy, Hamid


"An Accented Cinemais in numerous respects a monumental work. It is an attempt to rewrite the history of contemporary cinema by reinventing the categories we use to think about production, consumption, and spectatorship. The energy behind this effort and the continual use of excellent examples to back up the argument make the book a unique and original work of scholarship. It is likely to produce a great deal of debate and interest among film scholars and cultural analysts."--Ron Burnett, President and Professor, Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design "Hamid Naficy'sAccented Cinemaoffers a groundbreaking overview of theoretical and aesthetic debates concerning postcolonial, exilic, and diasporic forms of cinema. His analysis moves elegantly between high theory and sensitive 'close-up' readings of emblematic tropes in the work of key filmmakers in this field such as Kusturica, Guney, and Egoyan. The book is a major contribution to the study of transnational cultures and the cinematic production of cultural identities."--David Morley, Goldsmiths College, University of London "Hamid Naficy's magisterial account of an accented cinema proposes a timely reassessment of the ethics and aesthetics of the occidental center. In the details of language, perspective, and technique, the many significant films considered by Naficy invite us to a re-vision of our very understanding of cinema in the modern world."--Iain Chambers, Istituto Universitario Orientale "Drawing on highly literary and media theory, Naficy places accented films in an evolving, multilayered dialogue with home and host countries."--Robert Avila, San FranciscoNaficy, Hamid is the author of 'Accented Cinema Exilic and Diaspora Filmmaking', published 2001 under ISBN 9780691043913 and ISBN 0691043914.
