Sample text

My goal in chapter 3 is to historicize the modern woman of European art cinema so as to demonstrate how the discourse of postcolonialism may be applied and extended to texts not generally considered to engage with such issues. European art cinema emerges in this chapter as a highly contested form that rebuilds national identity in the wake of decolonization through an interior form of recolonization, the locus of which is the modern, white European woman and the register of which is her flanerie.

I am interested in this chapter in placing European art cinema squarely within this network, not only to suggest the importance of an economic and industrial analysis of it but also to question the nationalist emphasis of art cinema scholarship. I consider the establishment and support of various national new waves circa 1958–68 as nation-building responses at the cultural level to transnational cooperation and European unification at the economic and industrial levels. For the casts, the production, and the distribution of the canonical postwar French and Italian cinema are prominently transnational, and as such may be read in terms of discourses concerning national authenticity during the first years of the European Economic Community.
