Wallflower Press Book Launch and Signing

Fri 31 Oct, 6:30pm-7.30pm | Filmhouse Guild Room | Free but ticketed

Widescreen: Watching. Real. People. Elsewhere is the new book by renowned critic and filmmaker Mark Cousins, published by Wallflower Press. Combining articles from the acclaimed journal Prospect, he has charted and contextualised the radical changes cinema has undergone in the last decade. Writing from Britain, Europe, Iran, India and Africa, he has looked at the social trends and aesthetic implications of modern cinema's shifting sands. The result is a sceptical, passionate, eye-witness account of film today, argued originally and written with panache.

Mark Cousins is a filmmaker and producer, film critic, broadcaster and festival director. As a fervent supporter of African cinema, he is an advisor to the Africa in Motion film festival. He is the author of the highly acclaimed The Story of Film (2004) and his documentary subjects have included neo-Nazism and the history of Iranian cinema. Mark is presently Honorary Lecturer in Film and Media Studies at the University of Stirling.

Join us for a glass of wine at this event, where the book will be introduced by the editorial director of Wallflower Press, Yoram Allon, with Mark Cousins present for signings.
