Sport, Film, National Culture
Sport and film have been key components historically of national cultures and societies. This is the first collection to examine the intersection of these popular cultural forces, presenting case studies from 11 countries across six continents. Covering films of all types, from Hollywood blockbusters to regional documentaries and newsreels, the collection considers how filmic depictions of sport have configured and informed distinctive national cultures, societies and identities, and reveals the contrasting approaches that have emerged to sport cinema in differing national contexts. It is fascinating reading for all students and researchers working in film, media, cultural studies or sport, and for broader enthusiasts of both sport and film.
