Directory of World Cinema Britain 2: Directory of World Cinema Britain 2
Volume 1 was very much an 'overview' of British cinema, from its earliest days to the present. In this, the second volume, the essays will be more specific to certain periods and will encompass the evolutions of individual genres and directors. This will make for complimentary essays to volume 1 rather than simply an updating of them. The section on silent cinema and melodrama is replaced in this volume by War and Family Films the former being an interesting genre that has periodically appeared in British films in differing ways, and the latter because Britain has always produced hugely successful movies that appeal to family audiences.
Rather than have three individual essays pertaining to Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales, the volume will include examples of films made or set in those countries within the genre reviews.
The volume will include information on established British directors such as Ken Loach and Danny Boyle as well as writing about avant-garde newcomer Ben Wheatley, who directed the fabulously strange, "A Field in England" (2013). This volume will also shine the spotlight on the British Film Institute, and its role in funding, preservation and education in relation to British cinema.
This book takes a different angle to the first volume and as such would make an excellent companion to "Directory of World Cinema: Britain.""
