Abstract:

"Historical Dictionary of Middle Eastern Cinema covers the production and exhibition of the cinema of Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Egypt, Palestine, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, and Yemen, as well as the non-Arab state of Turkey and Iran, and the Jewish state of Israel." "To a substantial degree, cinema has served to define the perceived character of the peoples and nations of the Middle East. With that in mind, the entries introduce and emphasize both the national and transnational character of Middle Eastern cinema, which includes not only its indigenous but also its (neo)colonial aspects, both external and internal to the geography. This book contains a chronology, an introductory essay, a bibliography, and more than 500 cross-referenced dictionary entries on individual films, filmmakers, actors, significant historical figures, events, and concepts, and the countries themselves. It also covers the range of cinematic modes from documentary to fiction, representational to animation, generic to experimental, mainstream to avant garde, and entertainment to propaganda."--Jacket.
