Including chapter summaries, key terms, discussion questions, suggestions for further reading, and illustrated with provocative film stills throughout, this comprehensive introduction demonstrates that cinema from other cultures and in other languages isn't so foreign after all.Nochimson, Martha P. is the author of 'World on Film: An Introduction', published 2010 under ISBN 9781405139793 and ISBN 140513979X.
