Anthropology, Film Industries, Modularity

Book Pages: 304 Illustrations: 12 illustrations Published: October 2021


“This field-framing book features nine exemplary case studies involving sophisticated fieldwork, comparative analysis, and provocative theorizing. It counters film studies' standard schemes, theorizing ‘modularity’ to explain production as simultaneously local and integral to ‘industries.’ Faulting media industries studies’ coherence and production studies for understating its anthropological debt, the book underscores the need for an inter-field reckoning. Adding crucial Asian and African perspectives to the literature, this disciplinary boundary-making project pushes production studies to better explore its common ground with anthropology.” — John T. Caldwell, Distinguished Research Professor, University of California, Los Angeles
