It considers scholarship on gender in Indonesian cinema through the lens of power relations. With key themes such as nationalism, women’s rights, polygamy, and terrorism which have preoccupied local filmmakers for decades, Indonesia cinema resonates with the socio-political changes and upheavals in Indonesia’s modern history and projects images of the nation through the debates on gender and Islam. The text also sheds light on broader debates and questions about contemporary Islam and gender construction in contemporary Indonesia. Offering cutting edge accounts of the production of Islamic cinema, this new book considers gendered dimensions of Islamic media creation which further enrich the representations of the ‘religious’ and the ‘Islamic’ in the everyday lives of Muslims in South East Asia.     Download (1.97MB) Contemporary Indonesian Film: Spirits of Reform and Ghosts from the Past The Magic of Bollywood Religion, Politics and Gender in Indonesia: Disputing the Muslim Body Shi’i Islam In Iranian Cinema: Religion And Spirituality In Film (international Library Of Cultural Studies) Asian Cinema and the Use of Space: Interdisciplinary Perspectives Load more posts
