Summary:
"In Mythopoetic Cinema, Kriss Ravetto-Biagoli explores how contemporary European filmmakers treat mythopoetics as a critical practice that questions the constant need to provide new identities in a new Europe, and with it a new European cinema after the fall of the Soviet Union. Examining the work of Alexander Sokurov, Theodoros Angelopoulos, Marina Abramović, and Jean-Luc Godard, she analyzes the ways in which these filmmakers engage and evaluate the recent reconceptualization of Europe's borders, mythic figures, and identity paradoxes, as well as how their work questions the ability of the moving image to challenge conventional ways of understanding history."
