In this edited collection, an international ensemble of scholars examine what contemporary cinema tells us about neoliberal capitalism and cinema, exploring whether filmmakers are able to imagine progressive alternatives under capitalist conditions. Individual contributions discuss filmmaking practices, film distribution, textual characteristics and the reception of films made in different parts of the world. They engage with topics such as class struggle, debt, multiculturalism and the effect of neoliberalism on love and sexual behaviour. Written in accessible, jargon-free language, Contemporary Cinema and Neoliberal Ideology is an essential text for those interested in political filmmaking and the political meanings of films.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"A polemical but also nuanced exploration of practices and representations of neoliberalism in contemporary cinema, the collection offers clarity, depth and specificity both in its conceptual framing and the case studies included. From Loach to American Independent Cinema, Greece to China, and amateur films to romcoms, the range and variety of contexts examined, and approaches adopted, will render the book into a key resource for the study of ideology and/in cinema."

-Dr. Lydia Papadimitriou, Reader in Film Studies, Liverpool John Moores University
