New book edited by Film academics examines Franco-British cinematic relations

Je t’aime, moi non plus, cover

Southampton’s Lucy Mazdon and Catherine Wheatley address the dynamics of Franco-British cinemaic relations in an edited collection of essays from leading experts in the fields of French, British and European film history.

The book, entitled Je t’aime, moi non plus: Franco-British Cinematic Relations, analyses the ways in which each cinema has been shaped by its cross-channel ‘other’ and presents a significant challenge to the constructions of a ‘national’ cinema which have dominated so much British and French film history.

This collection of essays emerges from Lucy’s Arts and Humanities Research Council-funded research project on French Cinema in Britain which ran from 2006 to 2010. Lucy and Catherine are currently completing a second book, also to be published by Berghahn, entitled Sex, Art and Cinephilia; French Cinema in Britain since 1930.
