Synopsis

Did you know that Pocahontas probably never fell in love with John Smith, as film versions pretend? That the myth of the sexually eager Hula girls is based on misunderstandings by early explorers? Screening Difference is a fascinating voyage through recent movie blockbusters dealing with encounters between 'us,' based on white Hollywood, and 'them,' the representations of other races, ethnicities, and cultures. Looking at orientations in casting, make-up, sets, props, lighting, camera movements, music, and language, this lively book follows the best-known genres, from animated cartoons to romantic movies. Screening Difference tracks the stories to their origins and dissects their hidden messages.
