Nordic Film Cultures rethinks and reformulates the images, legacies, and impacts of Nordic cinemas within dynamic and multi-directional global contexts. The book engages with lacunae of transnational, extra-territorial history of Scandinavian and Nordic filmmaking from its early phases up to the present moment. The volume’s quest is to re-imagine Nordic cinema outside the confines of national and even regional cinema brackets to an even further new degree and in locations often least expected. Departing from what may be, to an international audience (and partially also to domestic spectators), obvious “traditions” of the Nordic region, the authors read against the grain of “the national” and reveal how significantly Scandinavian films and filmmakers transcend and transgress these national boundaries on myriad levels.
