Luca Caminati's new book, Cinema of Exploration, is available now!
Released at the end of 2020, Cinema of Exploration: Essays on an Adventurous Film Practice is the latest work by Luca Caminati, who co-edited the book with James Leo Cahill.
"This is the first anthology dedicated to analysing cinema’s relationship to exploration from a global, decolonial, and ecological perspective. Featuring leading scholars working with pathbreaking interdisciplinary methodologies, it theorizes not only cinema’s implication in imperial conquest but also its cutting-edge role in empirical expansion and experiments in sensual and critical perception. The collected essays consider filmmaking in cross-cultural contexts and films made in or about peoples in South America, Asia, Africa, Indigenous North America, as well as polar, outer space, and underwater exploration, with famous figures such as Jacques Yves Cousteau alongside amateur and scientific filmmakers."
