Elisa Cuter, Guido Kirsten and Hanna Prenzel on “Precarity in European Film‪"‬ De Gruyter Podcast

    • Education

Films not only entertain – they also probe social injustices and tell  marginalized stories. Against a backdrop of increasing economic  inequality, more and more people today are experiencing precarious  living situations, poverty, and social exclusion. The book “Precarity in  European Film: Depictions and Discourses” is a major new contribution  to research into the representation of class in contemporary visual  culture. 

In this book talk, Dr. Pablo Dominguez Andersen, communications director  at De Gruyter, meets the volume’s three editors — Elisa Cuter, Guido  Kirsten, and Hanna Prenzel — to discuss questions of precarity in  European cinema. What does precarity mean exactly? Is class still a  relevant issue today? And can we identify common themes in these films,  selected from across Europe? 

The volume brings together renowned scholars and early  career-researchers in mapping the ways in which European cinema —  whether mainstream or arthouse, fictional or documentary, traditional or  experimental — engages with phenomena of precarity, poverty, and social  exclusion. It looks at how the filmic traditions of different countries  reflect the socioeconomic conditions of precarity, and it illuminates  similarities in the iconography of precarious lives across cultures. 

The three editors are members of the Emmy Noether Research Group on  Cinematic Discourses of Deprivation at the Film University Babelsberg  Konrad Wolf in Potsdam. The book “Precarity in European Film” is the  first volume in the new De Gruyter series “Film, Class, Society.”
