About the Book

In films, memory may be expressed as narrative hindsight or in flashback. Film itself is an artifact of memory, whether documentary or screenplay. And much of human memory is organized and preserved as film portrayals—and Hollywood, purveyor of 80 percent of the cinema production worldwide, is not the only voice to represent it. Drawing on papers from a series of film conferences at University of Texas at San Antonio, this collection of essays covers multiple geographical, linguistic and cultural areas, emphasizing the historical and cultural interpretation of films not usually covered in film studies. Appendices invite further viewing of global films on memory.
