Sport, Film And National Culture (eBook)
Sobre o livro
Sport and film have historically been key components of national cultures and societies. This is the first collection dedicated to examining the intersection of these popular cultural forces within specific national contexts.Covering films of all types, from Hollywood blockbusters to regional documentaries and newsreels, the book considers how filmic depictions of sport have configured and informed distinctive national cultures, societies and identities. Featuring case studies from 11 national contexts across 6 continents - including North and South America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Oceania - it reveals the common and contrasting approaches that have emerged within sport cinema in differing national contexts.This is fascinating and important reading for all students and researchers working in film, media, cultural studies or sport, and for broader enthusiasts of both sport and film.
