ABOUT THIS BOOK

Beyond Auteurism is a comprehensive study of nine directors who have blurred the boundaries between art house and mainstream, national and transnational, film production. Rosanna Maule argues that the film auteur is not only the most important symbol of European cinema’s cultural tradition, but a crucial part of Europe’s efforts to develop its cinema within domestic and international film industries. Through the examples of Luc Besson, Claire Denis, Gabriele Salvatores, and others, this volume offers an important contribution to a historical understanding of filmmaking that rejects America-centric practices.
