Work in Cinema PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Work in Cinema free pdf Cinema frequently depicts various types of work, but this representation is never straightforward. It depends on and reflects many factors, most importantly the place and time the film is made and the type of audience it addresses. In this volume, the contributors employ transnational and transhistorical perspectives to compare films from different countries, periods, and genres. Rather than prescribe a specific meaning of work, the collection explores its fuzzy edges, including sex work, criminal work, situations where the jobs' purpose is to reduce work, and other marginal types of labor. The contributors draw attention to the paradox that although there is seemingly less work to be done now than it was in the past, the central role of work in human life has not been challenged: it is seen as the human condition.
