Screening World Cinema brings together a selection of key articles on world cinema published over the past two decades in the internationally renowned journal Screen.

This new collection allows readers to cross-reference the wide-ranging debates on world cinema that have been pursued and developed across many issues of the journal. Themes addressed include the problem of defining "World Cinema;" the relationship between "First" and "Third" cinemas and criticisms; issues of modernity and modernization; and melodrama as a national and transnational cinematic mode. Screening World Cinema also features chapters on important contemporary world cinemas--New Iranian, Latin American and Chinese cinemas among them--as they negotiate issues of globalization and cultural and political modernity, as well as a complete listing of articles and other items on world cinema publishing in Screen since 1976.
