An accessible and vibrant guide to the history of cinema all over the world, from its inception to the latest blockbuster

Cinema: The Whole Story takes a close look at the key time periods, genres and key works in world cinema. It places the burgeoning world of cinema in the context of social and cultural developments that have taken place since its beginnings. Organized chronologically, the book traces the evolution of cinematic development, from the earliest days of film projection to the multiscreen cinemas and super-technology of today. Illustrated, in-depth texts chart every genre of cinema, from silent films to epic blockbusters, CGI graphics and the groundbreaking effects of the 21st century, while timelines highlight key influences and events across the decades.

Written by an international team of film experts, led by film historian Philip Kemp, the book not only surveys key works, but also offers insights into the world of film-making, exploring everything from camera and lighting to acting styles, enabling you to interpret the full meaning of world-famous movies. Discover what makes a star, what makes a film a success – and why even the most promising of ideas can prove an expensive disaster.

If you love cinema and would like to know more about it, look no further than Cinema: The Whole Story. It is an indispensable book for all those who love watching and reading about films, and who want to understand more about the international world of cinema.
