    'Demanding yet accessible, serious yet stimulating, Teaching World Cinema will be a boon for anyone seeking to establish or improve their skills in these areas.' Laurence Alster, TES 11/6/04

    Is there such a thing as 'world cinema'? Is it simply cinema that isn't from Hollywood? Is British or European Cinema part of World cinema or is World Cinema something other than our own? These are the key questions students need to consider when studying this subject. The aim of this guide is to provide teachers with a comprehensive approach to teaching World Cinema topics. It offers opportunities for development of key concepts around case studies of national cinemas.
