The Liverpool Companion to World Science Fiction Film (2014)
edited by Sonja Fritzsche
The collection offers critical insights into SF far beyond the more common Anglo-American narratives. Contributors take either a national or transnational approach, and stretch the geographic and conceptual boundaries of science fiction cinema. Film traditions represented include Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Cameroon, China, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Poland, the United Kingdom, and the United States plus a chapter on digital shorts. From the dinosaur myth that became Godzilla to Brazilian science fiction comedy, from China’s Death Ray to Kenya’s Pumzi, this book will broaden the horizons of scholars and students of Science Fiction.
It features chapters by Ritch Calvin, Jie Zhang, Jessica Langer and Dominic Allessio, Takayuki Tatsumi, Derek Johnston, Jason Merrill, Evan Torner, Daniel Tron, Katie Moylan, Rafaella Boccolini, Robyn Citizen, Mariano Paz, Alfredo Suppia, and Pawel Frelik.
