about

In this groundbreaking exploration of in-flight cinema, Stephen Groening traces the history of this transnational cinematic practice. At once a history of exhibition and an inquiry into changing forms of media and spectatorship, this interdisciplinary book opens up new directions in the history of cinema, visuality, travel and cultural geography.

Stephen Groening is Assistant Professor of Film and Media Studies at George Mason University, USA. He has published a number of articles in academic journals and edited anthologies.
