9780934211857: Masters & Masterpieces of Iranian Cinema

The rise of Iranian cinema to world prominence over the last few decades is one of the most fascinating cultural stories of our time. There is scarcely an international film festival anywhere that does not honour the aesthetic and political explorations of Iranian artists. Three generations of filmmakers -- from Bahram Beiza'i to Mohsen Makhmalbaf to his daughter Samira makhmalbaf -- are all active today, creating works of spectacular range and depth. In Europe and North America, in Asia and Latin America, in Australia and Africa, the thematic and narrative richness of Iranain cinema has met with tremendous acclaim. Indeed, its particular mode of realism -- building on such cinematic antecedents as Italian, French and German neo-realism -- has become truly transnational, contributing a new visual vocabulary to filmmaking everywhere.

From the Publisher :

"Masters & Masterpieces of Iranian Cinema offers a remarkable overview of Iranian cinema and the directors who have transformed the shape of Iranian culture in modern history. With his superb authority on the social and political history of the region, Dabashi provides a tour de force of the artistic developments in Iran over the past half a century and thus beautifully lays out the alluring dynamic between Iranian art and politics. Perhaps the most significant accomplishment of this marvelous book is Dabashi's refusal to limit the importance of Iranian cinema to its regional domain, as he consistently cultivates its global prominence."
--Shirin Neshat, film & video artist, director of Women without Men

"For over a decade Hamid Dabashi's revelations have been as instrumental in the fashioning of my own cinema as Naderi, Kiarostami, Bresson, or Rossellini. Dabashi brilliantly weaves together Iranian cinema, literature, history, philosophy, and politics in a national and global setting, and lovingly and masterfully guides his readers to cultural and aesthetic insights. If Iranian cinema brought the world a "poetic" vision of modern Iran, Dabashi has done no less in this piercing analysis."
--Ramin Bahrani, filmmaker, director of Man Push Cart

Praise for Hamid Dabashi's previous books

"Learned...sparkles with verve and a sometimes punishing wit.... Encyclopedic in its scope, informal in tone, shrewd in its interpretation, indispensable...Dabashi is the perfect guide."--Edward W. Said

"The grand clash of civilizations and ideologies will increasingly take place within the west, with such writers and intellectuals as Dabashi".--Pankaj Mishra, The Guardian

"Lively and well written.... Objective and empathetic...unlike many others on contemporary Iran".--Ervand Abrahamian, International Journal of Middle East Studies

Description du livre Mage Publishers. Hardback. État : new. BRAND NEW, Masters and Masterpieces of Iranian Cinema, Hamid Dabashi, The rise of Iranian cinema to world prominence over the last few decades is one of the most fascinating cultural stories of our time. There is scarcely an international film festival anywhere that does not honour the aesthetic and political explorations of Iranian artists. MASTERS & MASTERPIECES OF IRANIAN CINEMA celebrates this remarkable emergence. It focuses on twelve of the most important Iranian filmmakers of the past half-century -- among them, such pioneers as Forugh Farrokhzad, Dariush Mehrjui, Abbas Kiarostami, and Jafar Panahi. In his examination of their lives and their greatest works, Hamid Dabashi explains how, despite the censorship of both the Pahlavi monarchy and the Islamic Republic, the creativity of these filmmakers has transcended national and cultural borders. His account traces the ascendancy of Iranian cinema in modern Iranian intellectual history and also probes its links to Persian poetry, fiction, art, and philosophy. In Europe and in North America, in Asia and in Latin America, in Australia and Africa, the thematic and narrative richness of Iranian cinema has met with tremendous acclaim. Indeed, its particular modes of realism -- building on such cinematic antecedents as Italian, French and German neorealism -- have become truly transnational, contributing a new visual vocabulary to filmmaking everywhere. Masters & Masterpieces of Iranian Cinema studies the role that prominent film festivals have played in fostering the global success of Iranian cinema, and investigates the reception of these films within Iran, an intriguing story in its own right. This is a book that will reward not only the scholar and the film aficionado but also anyone interested in the cultural history of modern Iran. N° de réf. du libraire B9780934211857
