The editors of the volume underline the rationale for the collection via the diversity and centrality of journey narratives to cinema. After tracing a history of the importance of mobility to the development of both film and film studies, the chapter considers how journeys can be treated as an element of formal innovation, narrative structure and as an ethical issue. This is then used to understand the relationship of film to modernity, globalisation, nationhood and transnationalism. This importance is then applied to an outline of the subsequent chapters and the structure of the rest of the book.
