Promotional Information

'Shadow Economies of Cinema is a strong addition to the literature on contemporary industry studies. It also demonstrates an admirable grasp of wide range of fields upon which cinema studies is starting to impinge. Lobato ends with a call for cinema studies "to open up a dialogue with other fields that specialise in cultural circulation from anthropology to economics.' - Screening the Past 'Shadow Economies is a valuable contribution to reimagine the experience of cinema beyond the classic focus on representation. International in its scope, and lucid in its theoretical exposition, it will find interest among academic and non academic readers.' - Senses of Cinema 'From the US video economy to illegal peer-to-peer file sharing, Shadow Economies of Cinema offers a cross-nation, formal/informal mapping of some of the complexities of film distribution, seeking to foreground areas of the field that are largely unquantifiable and do not necessarily appear in the trade press.' - New Review of Film and Television Studies
