“Julie Codell’s anthology does not so much as carve out a niche in film studies as dive in and out of several pre-existing niches, helping itself en route to anything that looks bright and attractive. The result is a collection that overlaps the territory of various recent publications… while forging links and mapping interconnections between its prime concerns… Altogether, this collection should encourage students to explore areas of cinema beyond the conventional English-language mainstream, enriching their viewing experience and offering insights and wider cultural contexts for the films they watch.” The Times Higher Education Supplement
“This is a volume whose time has come: a new kind of film text to suit an era when globalization challenges the authority of local cultures, and diasporic mobility is the order of the day.” E. Ann Kaplan, State University of New York at Stony Brook
"A superb collection that insightfully demonstrates that race and gender shape global cinema. Ideal for film courses and for anyone interested in world cinema, this is a well-balanced, rigorous, and accessible group of essays sure to provoke deep reflection and passionate discussion." Daniel Bernardi, Arizona State University
