Abstract


This issue was put together in order to argue that perceptions of meaningful social spaces, as well as ideas of spatial lack, desolation, breakdown, rootlessness, and destruction, all should be conceptually gathered as examples of meaningful chronotopes — irreducibly linked sketches of space and time — through which spacetime is produced and mediated. Instead of flattening the cinema halls, highways, and development projects of transnational capital, this issue seeks a paradigm from which to make sense of the interactions of space and cinema, where place is always understood to have both material and imaginative qualities, and where its production is both local andglobal. The authors writing here argue that cinema both represents and materially takes part in the reorientation of space in the 21stcentury.
