Description

Category:
Publisher: | ISBN: | Pages:

This volume is a carefully curated selection of recently published academic research, critical essays, translations, and interviews on Pakistani cinema. Indispensable for film enthusiasts, students, and scholars of cinema in Pakistan and beyond, it brings cutting edge works previously trapped behind paywalls together with neglected writings by figures such as Manto, Faiz Ahmed Faiz, and Muhammad Hasan Askari. Certain to become a classic in the burgeoning field of South Asian film and media studies, its scope encompasses past and present complexities of filmmaking, distribution, and cinephilia in a country whose rich cinematic heritage is just beginning to be appreciated. Film and Cinephilia in Pakistan is a brilliant book of impressive depth and range. Well-written, with a superb introduction, and filled to the brim with theoretical and historical insights, it constitutes a field-defining intervention into Pakistani cinema studies. An absolute must-read for film scholars, media theorists, and anyone interested in modern South Asia.
