Summary "As Film Studies continues to move toward embracing the study of global cinema, this book argues for the significance of melodrama as a method through which to approach contemporary films such that we can still retain their local specificity while accounting for how they also respond to changes in the representation of time, space, and embodiment in the era of globalization"-- Provided by publisher.
