Use the Amazon App to scan ISBNs and compare prices.
"...argues persuasively for conceptualizing a georeligious film aesthetic. It does so by examining the infinitely varied processes by which films from diverse cultures and nations embody religious ideas and values which themselves are revitalized in the quintessential twentieth-century art form. This multi-disciplinary, multi-national volume promises to open up new perspectives on the complex relationships among religion, culture, spectatorship and cinema." - Matthew Bernstein, Emory University
"Representing Religion in World Cinema: Mythmaking, Filmmaking, Culture Making is a far-ranging, provocative collection that pushes the boundaries of religion-and-cinema studies way beyond where, for too long, they have rested too comfortably. The essays are carefully selected and usefully introduced by Brent Plate, so the volume will be most useful in the university classroom." - Ron Grimes, Wilfrid Laurier University
