Transnational Cinemas 1.2 Transnational Cinemas 1.2

Intellect is delighted to announce the publication of the second issue of Transnational Cinemas.

Articles in this issue continue the discussions in the inaugural issue around the question of what transnationalism really means. The question is explored in the context of the People’s Republic of China, Taiwan and Hong Kong, and by examining the idea of the ‘postcolonial exotic’ in the New Zealand film,  Apron Strings, directed by a Samoan/New Zealand director and written by an Indian scriptwriter, which explores relationships between descendents of British and Indian settlers in New Zealand. Other articles analyse the relationship between the regional, national and global scales in feature film production in three UK regions – Northern Ireland, Scotland and South West England, and explore transnationalism in Almodóvar’s All About my Mother. Finally, the issue includes a report on the Transnational Cinemas symposium at University of Portsmouth in February 2010 together with book reviews.
