Description

This title is part of the "Directory of World Cinema" series. It includes contributions from some of the leading academics in the field. It features full colour illustrations. It features comprehensive filmography as an index. Building on the material presented in the first instalment of the "Directory of World Cinema: Germany", this volume explores a range of compelling and sometimes surprising German films. Included here is an in-depth treatment of the sports film that identifies a close interrelationship between sports, commerce, cinema, and politics from the 1920s to the present day. This is complemented by a focus on film adaptations of several German literary classics and the treatment of history as a cinematic spectacle in costume dramas. Also featured are some lesser-studied genres, including musicals, crime films, experimental films, and westerns, along with several of the so-called Eastern westerns produced in East Germany during the Cold War. Rounding out the volume are essays on key directors, including Fritz Lang and Rainer Werner Fassbinder, and overviews of German film festivals. "Directory of World Cinema: Germany 2" attests to the crucial importance played by genre films in the German film industry in the shaping and reshaping of national identity throughout the tumultuous twentieth century.
