Abstract:

"American independent cinema has been a key cultural media scene for the last 15 years. This sector appears to exist as a method of cultural production and, simultaneously, a reference through which films can be attached to certain socio-political movements. Declarations of Independence considers whether unique independent film can thrive or even survive in an industry of mass-production and profit." "This volume presents an academic discussion of the genre in reference to its wider social and economic contexts. Berra's unique structural approach interrogates American independent cinema with a detailed understanding of the production process, considering its core product, audiences and audiences' enthusiasm for alternative media."--Jacket.
