US INDEPENDENT FILM AFTER 1989: POSSIBLE FILMS. Ed. by Claire Perkins. Edinburgh University Press, 2015. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Oxford University Press. 256 pp. ISBN 9780748692446 In English.
This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: In contemporary film and popular culture the terms 'independent' and 'indie' hold instant recognition and considerable cultural cachet. As both a brand of American filmmaking and a keynote of critical film discourse, indie denotes specific textual, industrial and reception practices that have been enthusiastically cultivated across the last decade of the twentieth century and the first of the twenty-first. Underpinning this cultural category is a canon of highly visible films and filmmakers whose 'maverick' personas and self-aware stylisation have successfully sold indie as a quality, alternative worldview - figures like Quentin Tarantino, Joel and Ethan Coen, Kevin Smith and Wes Anderson, and films like Slacker, Memento, Happiness and Juno. US Independent Filmmaking After 1989: Possible Films reframes this dominant indie canon by attending to a group of films that have not been so fully subsumed by its critical and promotional rhetoric.
