Great Canadian Film DirectorsBook - 2007
Great Canadian Film Directors is the first major study that reflects the cultural and linguistic diversity of Canada's most dynamic film directors. The 19 essays in this collection focus on each filmmaker's ability to create a vision that both reveals and redefines our national cultures. Together, these essays, by established and emerging scholars, highlight the diversity, imaginative power, and talent of Canadian filmmakers. This collection's value is in its contemporary analysis of major figures as well as critical discussions of the work of women directors and young filmmakers. Filmographies and selected bibliographies for each director provide film students and the movie-going public with an unrivalled study of a cinema that now garners world attention.
