Summary "Traces recurring debates about what constitutes film's political potential and argues that the relation between the film and the urban space has been critical to these debates and their historical transformations. The book demonstrates that certain recurring prescriptions - shooting on location, disrupting normalising time, experimenting with memory, interlinking the spaces of screen and cinema - draw on the relation between film and urban space as a kind of laboratory.'--Provided by publisher
Identifies and analyses the major debates about the crucial historical relationship between film and the city to consider existing and future possibilities
