"[This book] explores the different ways in which Italian American directors from the 1920s to the present have responded to their ethnicity. While some directors have used film to declare their ethnic roots and create an Italian American 'imagined community,' others have ignored or even denied their background . . . Cavallero's exploration of the films of Capra, Scorsese, Savoca, Coppola,and Tarantino demonstrates how immigrant Italians fought prejudice, how later generations positioned themselves in relation to their predecessors, and how the American cinema, usually seen as a cultural instituion that works to assimlate, has also served as a forum where assimilation was resisted." -- Book cover.

Using Lars von Trier's 2003 film Dogvilleas a launchpad for his ideas, Jake Horsley aims to discuss the conflict between ;artistic ; and ;commercial ; movie-making that he believes exists in the film industry today. He proposes that the term ;independent, ; when applied to filmmaking, be considered an artistic term relating to sensibility and vision and not simply a question of backing or funds. Can an ;independent ; film also be a commercial success in Hollywood? Charting the history of independent cinema from early pioneers Jean-Luc Godard and Sam Peckinpah to modern masters such as David Lynch, this book provides a critical analysis of the state of today's film industry.

Literary Nonfiction. Film Studies. Remarkable for the variety and sophistication of the approaches that it brings to its subject matter, SCREENING ETHNICITY makes a powerful argument for the validity, indeed the necessity, of Italian American cinema as an object of study. By including the concepts of race, gender, and social class along with the more obvious themes of identity and ethnicity, this collection sheds new light on the careers of Frank Capra, Francis Ford Coppola, Michael Cimino, Martin Scorsese, Quentin Tarantino, and the recently canonized David Chase, while calling attention to the achievements of such lesser known figures as Abel Ferrara, Stanley Tucci, Mariarosy Calleri, and Nancy Savoca. "It comes as no suprise that there is so much smart thinking and writing contained in this book" Bill Tonelli, Rolling Stone."
