How does postcolonial theory recast the debates in cinema studies, and with what aesthetic, economic and political implications? How does postcolonial cinema, in turn, contribute to and, at times, reframe postcolonial debates? "Postcolonial cinema" is presented here not a rigid category within which cinematic productions from the "Third World" or the "Global South" are to be confined, but as a critical tool with which to address issues of counter-hegemony, resistance, and alternative forms of representation in film productions, past and recent. Including contributions from: Julie F. Codell, Ruth Ben-Ghiat, Ella Shohat, Hamish Ford, Mariam Lam, Paulo de Medeiros, Jude Akudinobi , Sabine Doran, Mireille Rosello, Marguerite Waller, Sandra Ponzanesi, Jeffrey Geiger , Yosefa Loshitzky , Rosa-Linda Fregoso , Shohini Chaudhuri The book concludes with an afterword by the editors, drawing conclusions and indicating new directions for postcolonial film studies.
