Cinema of the Other Europe: The Industry and Artistry of East Central European Film is a comprehensive study of the cinematic traditions of Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic and Slovakia from 1945 to the present day, exploring the major schools of filmmaking and the main stages of development across the region during the period of state socialism up until the end of the Cold War, as well as more recent transformations post-1989. In encouraging a more inclusive and comprehensive understanding of European cinema, much needed for the new unified Europe :enlarged: towards its Eastern periphery, this book maps out the interactions, key concerns, thematic spheres and stylistic particularities that make the cinema of East Central Europe a vital part of European film tradition. In particular, this study explores the social, historical, ethical and industrial contexts of filmmaking of the region, from the innovations of Hungarian Cinema of the 1950s, the international impact of the Czechoslovak New Wave in the 1960s and 1970s, the Polish cinema of :moral concern: throughout the 1980s, to the transitional cinema of post-communism and the :velvet revolutions: of the 1990s. The book thus examines the work of directors as diverse as Zoltá:n Fá:bri, Wojciech Has, Jan Nemec, Istvá:n Szabó:, Juraj Jakubisko, Ká:roly Makk, Mikló:s Jancsó:, Krzysztof Zanussi, Milos Forman, Andrzej Wajda, Má:rta Mé:szá:ros, Andrzej Munk, Jan Sverá:k, Bela Tarr and Krzysztof Kieslowski, and considers films such as The Fifth Seal, The Saragossa Manuscript, The Round-Up, Mephisto, Passenger, Ashes and Diamonds, A Blonde in Love, The Dekalogue, Kolya, Goodbye Lenin and Divided We Fall. Cinema of the Other Europe is thus a timely appraisal of Film Studies debates ranging from the representation of history and memory, the reassessment of political content, ethics and society, the rehabilitation of popular cinema, and the rethinking of national and regional cinemas in the context of!
