Crossing New Europe free pdf Although a long-established and influential genre, this is the first comprehensive study of the European road cinema. "Crossing New Europe" investigates this tradition, its relationship with the American road movie and its aesthetic forms. It examines such crucial issues as individual and national identity crises, and phenomena such as displacement, diaspora, exile, migration, nomadism, and tourism in postmodern, post-Berlin Wall Europe. Drawing on the work of Said, Hall, Shields, Urry, Bauman, Deleuze and Guattari and other critical theorists, "Crossing New Europe" adopts a broad interpretation of 'Europe' and discusses directors who have long been associated with the road movie, such as "Wim Wenders" ("Alice in the Cities", "Lisbon Story") and "Aki Kaurismaki" ("Leningrad Cowboys Go America!")- authors with a distinctive vision of the road, such as Eric Rohmer, Werner Herzog and Patrick Keiller- and more recent contributions such as "Morven Callar", "Calendar", "Code Unknown", "Dear Diary", and "The Last Resort".
