ISE Film History: An Introduction. ISBN: 9781265924706. Thompson
This new edition of Film History has been revised to include recent films, new examples, and updated comprehensive overviews of the rise of streaming services as purveyors of cinematic content as well as the massive disruptions of film production, distribution, and exhibition caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. It is a comprehensive global survey of film and its many genres - from drama and comedy to documentary and experimental - written by three of the discipline's leading scholars. Concepts and events are illustrated with frame enlargements taken from the original sources, giving students more realistic and relevant points of reference than publicity stills. There are 100 new film clips with commentary in McGraw Hill Connect (R) - the web-based assignment and assessment platform that helps you connect your students to their coursework. Film History is a text that any serious film scholar - professor, undergraduate, or graduate student - will want to read and keep.
