A dynamic, scholarly engagement with Susanne Bier's workThe award-winning Danish director Susanne Bier has become increasingly known for her generic innovations and industrial fluidity, moving confidently between cinema and television at a time where the scarcity of women directors has become a subject of major critical and popular attention. 'Refocus: The Films of Susanne Bier' is a dynamic, scholarly engagement with Bier's work, and a timely consideration of her impressive authorial achievements. Featuring essays from both recognised and up-and-coming scholars in Scandinavian, transnational and feminist film and media studies, this book also includes an original interview with Bier, addressing some of the provocative readings of her films advanced by the volume's contributors.Key featuresThe first volume to examine Susanne Bier's entire oeuvreIncludes original research from prestigious scholars in Scandinavian, transnational and feminist film and media studiesWritten in engaging, accessible prose enlivened by detailed case studies Engages with critical issues in Danish cinema related to screenwriting, collaboration, authorship, gender, identity, ethics, genre, practitioner's agency and receptionFeatures an original interview with Susanne Bier
