Film Studies: An Introduction is an excellent volume that brings together discussions on film elements, global film histories, critical and theoretical debates in Cinema Studies and Indian cinematic forms, aesthetics and histories. Designed as a textbook on Film Studies for undergraduate and graduate courses, it has essays that are lucidly written and use examples from Indian cinemas that its readers would be familiar with. Responding to a rapidly transforming field, this volume deftly weaves together key concepts of the discipline with their resignifications in a context of exploding media forms. This is a holistic and fabulous teaching aid for the discipline and one which will prepare students for further studies and research in the discipline. (Ira Bhaskar, Professor of Cinema Studies, JNU.) This book presents Indian Film Studies in a remarkably cosmopolitan profile. The editors assemble theoretical approaches and disciplinary formations that originate in Europe and the USA but are modified, elaborated and interrupted in multiple sites. To cater to a diverse audience, the book draws upon Indian cinema’s variegated cultures as a resource to explain concepts and make comparisons. Importantly, the text is designed to capture technological dynamics in cinema’s relationship to other media and in its digital transformation. Film Studies: An Introduction distills cutting edge scholarship in a timely pedagogic text that can be widely used in colleges and for a broader public.
