The Cinema of Small Nations is the first major analysis of small national cinemas, comprising 12 case studies of small national and sub national cinemas from around the world, including Ireland, Denmark, Iceland, Scotland, Bulgaria, Tunisia, Burkina Faso, Cuba, Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and New Zealand. Written by an array of distinguished and emerging scholars, the case studies provide detailed analyses of the particular cinema in question, with an emphasis on the last decade, considering both institutional and textual issues relevant to the national dimension of each cinema. While each chapter offers an in-depth analysis of an individual cinema, the book as a whole provides the basis for a broader and more properly comparative understanding of small or minor national cinemas and their increasing significance within the international domain of moving image production, distribution, and consumption.
