About this product
- DescriptionThe interdisciplinary nature of this book makes it accessible to a wide audience. It includes contributions from leading scholars and academics from over 10 countries. It introduces some highly invative topics and the methodological approach differs from any previous books on similar topics. Urban Cinematics aims to review the mechanisms by which cinema and the moving image contribute to our understanding of cities while at the same time addressing two key issues: how do film-makers make use of cities and how do cities make use of cinema? It explores the use of cinema as a tool/approach to investigate the phemena, experience and narrative of cities. It brings together the leading scholars in a variety of disciplines including architecture, urbanism and film studies. The Urban Cinematics book is organised into five thematic sections, which include fifteen academic papers by scholars from architecture, landscape, urban design and film studies, as well as four dialogues between film-makers and an academic audience.
