Iranian cinema is today widely recognized not merely as a distinctive national cinema, but as one of the most innovative in the world. Established masters like Abbas Kiarostami and Mohsen Makhmalbaf have been joined by newcomers like Samira Makhmalbaf, Majid Majidi, Ja'far Qobadi and Bahman Qobadi, all directors whose films are screened to increasing acclaim in international festivals. This international stature both fascinates Western observers and appears paradoxical in line with perceptions of Iran as anti-modern. The largely Iranian contributors to this book look in depth at how Iranian cinema became a true 'world cinema'. From a range of perspectives, they explore cinema's development in post Revolution Iran and its place in Iranian culture.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"provides an important insight into just how important a medium a national cinema can be in understanding and interpreting cultural identity." -Film Magazine "This anthology, edited by anthropologist Richard Tapper and containing texts by film-workers, film scholars, political and social scientists as well as other anthropologists, seems to me to be an excellent place to start learning!" -Film International
