An inside look at parole board decision making and its consequences.
Blake Atwood is an assistant professor in the Department of Middle Eastern Studies at the University of Texas at Austin. He is the coeditor, with Peter Decherney, of Iranian Cinema in a Global Context: Policy, Politics, and Form (2014).
Reform Cinema is not only an essential book for institutions that teach Iranian cinema, but also a very valuable source for those studying the reform movement's place in Iranian history.
Nasrin Rahimieh, University of California, Irvine:In Reform Cinema in Iran, Atwood masterfully captures the complex and paradoxical relations between filmmaking and the desire for reconfigurations of the revolution's objectives. Particularly significant is his analysis of how film as a medium and new technologies of representation were instrumental in setting the terms of the reform movement. An important contribution to the study of Iranian cinema and contemporary Iran's cultural production.
Roxanne Varzi, University of California, Irvine:From mysticism to music videos Blake Atwood's Reform Cinema in Iran gives us a comprehensive and alternative lens to understand recent Iranian film. It is an important book for students and lovers of Iranian cinema.
Negar Mottahedeh, Duke University:Keenly aware of the collaboration between postcolonial cinemas and political movements, Atwood explores the Iranian film industry of the 1980s and 90s. Reform Cinema in Iran vividly reveals how Iranian films of that era and new digital technologies that captured them, participated in the definition of democracy, human rights, and civil society in Iran, thereby supplanting the revolutionary rhetoric of resistance and imperialism that had swept the nation a decade earlier.
