Summary
"Screening Difference takes us on a fascinating voyage through major movie blockbusters that deal with the encounter between "us"--Mainstream white Hollywood - and "them"--the filmic representations of other races, ethnicities, and cultures. Looking at subtle orientations in casting and makeup, sets and props, lighting and camera movements, and music and language, this lively book follows the best-known genres and sub-genres - from animated cartoons and wilderness films to romantic movies and colonial adventures. Screening Difference tracks the stories back to their origins and patiently dissects the hidden messages that have crept into them."--Jacket
