This book provides a thorough overview of the recently emerged field of transnational film studies. Covering a range of approaches to analyzing films about migrant, cross-cultural and cross-border experience, as well as looking at how film production has moved beyond clear national boundaries to become a product of border crossing finance and creative personnel, Steven Rawle brings together the key concepts and theories of transnational cinema. This includes genre, remakes, diasporic and exilic cinema, and the limits of thinking about cinema as a particularly national cultural artefact. It provides students and lovers of film with a strong grounding in this most recent and timely field of film studies.

 Steven Rawle is Associate Professor in Media Production and Film Studies at York St John University, UK. He is the author of Performance in in the Cinema of Hal Hartley (2011), co-author of The Language of Film (2015), and co-editor of Partners in Suspense: Critical Essays on Bernard Herrmann and Alfred Hitchcock (2016). His publications have appeared in multiple edited collections on topics including Takashi Miike films and Godzilla movies, and journals including the East Asian Journal of Popular Culture and Film Criticism
