Book News
Examines the film industry's fascination with bondage and captivity, seeking to revisualize American cinema through the lens of critical discourse on captivity and slave narratives, as well as postcolonial critiques of cinematic constructions of whiteness, blackness, gender, and sexuality. Five chapters draw upon a wide range of critical methodologies, including postcolonial studies, feminist film criticism, anthropology, and phenomenology to answer questions about captivity in relation to both those in front of and behind the camera.
