about

Shadow Economies of Cinema examines how films travel through time and space, both inside and outside established circuits of audiovisual trade. Combining industrial and cultural analysis, this book looks at distribution circuits from across the Americas, Africa and the Asia-Pacific, and explains how they shape film culture in their own image.

RAMON LOBATO is research fellow at the Swinburne Institute for Social Research, Swinburne University of Technology, Melbourne, Australia.
