Engaging Film : Geographies of Mobility and Identity

Tim J. Cresswell, Deborah P. Dixon

Research output: Book/ReportBook


This creative, interdisciplinary volume explores the engagements among film, space and identity, and features a section on the use of films in the classroom as a critical pedagogical tool. Focusing on anti-essentialist themes in films and film production, this book examines how social and spatial identities are produced (or dissolved) in films and how mobility is used to create different experiences of time and space. Among the films examined are 'Pulp Fiction', 'Bulworth', 'Terminator 2' and 'The Crying Game', as well as home movies and avant garde films.
