Description

Intervening at the crossroads of philosophy, politics, and cinema, this book argues that the career of Robert Guédiguian, director of Marius et Jeannette (1997) and other popular auteurist films, can be read as an original and coherent project: to make a committed, historically-conscious cinema with friends, in a local space, and over a long period of time. Illustrated with comprehensive readings of all of Guédiguian's films.

Reviews

'With the excellence of his scholarship, his judicious but accessible use of theory, his thorough knowledge of context and his careful eye for detail, Mai has written a book that will be a key reference on the director for years to come.'
Martin O'Shaughnessy, Nottingham Trent University, H-France Review, Vol. 18 (January 2018), No. 24
