about

Cinematic Rotterdam explores the role that cinema played in Rotterdam's urban development between 1920 and 1980. Exploring the city's backdrop in a variety of feature films and avant-garde classics, it also describes how the city has established and maintained its identity through thousands of promotional and educational films and television programs. Written by film scholar Floris Paalman, Cinematic Rotterdam is not only a thorough study of the audiovisual history of Rotterdam but is more especially a conceptual exploration of a hidden dimension of the city itself. Besides being an exhaustive reference work for policymakers, clients, producers and researchers in architecture, media and social studies, this overview makes a fascinating visual guide for anyone interested in looking at the city of Rotterdam from a fresh angle.
