British rural landscapes on film

Author: Paul Newland, (Lecturer in film studies)
Publisher: Manchester : Manchester University Press, 2017.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
This work offers insights into how rural areas in Britain have been represented on film, from the silent era, through both world wars, and on into the 21st century. The contributors demonstrate that the countryside has provided Britain (and its constituent nations and regions) with a dense range of spaces in which cultural identities have been (and continue to be) worked through.
