Monumental 'America: Films from Elsewhere' is new from The Shoestring Publisher

America: Films from Elsewhere is a beautifully-designed, 616-page survey of cinematic interrogations of American culture, people and systems by auteurs outside of the States. Spanning Chantal Akerman to Lars von Trier, the comprehensive scope of this study seeks to uncloud the mystique of Hollywood, explore the world’s most dominant capitalist empire and uncover intranational secrets from the perspective of filmmakers from elsewhere. A certain undercurrent also implicates the reader in a consideration of national identity and global unity, while texts by contributors such as Adam Nayman, Clare Davies, Corina Copp, Ed Halter, Elena Gorfinkel, Hilton Als, James Quandt, Jim Hoberman, Rachel Dwyer and Vic Brooks all work in service of the question, “What is America?” Featured image is from Pablo Larraín’s Jackie, starring Natalie Portman.
