Projected Cities

In their depiction of the city, movies carry a multiplicity of means through which to reveal elements of culture, architecture and history, and also to project the preoccupations with memory, death and the origins of the image which crucially connect cinema with urban space. "Projected Cities" surveys the connections between cinematic images and cities, with particular focus on the cinema of Europe and Japan, two closely related cinematic cultures which have been foremost in the use of urban imagery. It explores urban film imagery at moments of turmoil and experimentation, whether occurring in the physical and sensory dimension of the city, or on its exterior surfaces. The book finally assesses the impact of contemporary media culture on the status of film, on cinema spaces, and on the visual rendering of the contemporary moment in the digital city. "Projected Cities" is an illuminating, often provocative, examination of urban and cinema history, and should appeal to all readers engaged with the city, film and contemporary culture.
