Rethinking Occupied Ireland
Gender and Incarceration in Contemporary Irish FilmBook - 2014 | First edition
Focusing on Irish-made films from 1960 to the 1990s, Scarlata considers the many ways in which filmmakers present the country as "occupied." Exploring Ireland's past in relation to its present, these films become a mode of postcolonial historiography, and, Scarlata argues, they are an important component in the re-evaluation of what constitutes political cinema and political resistance.
