Promised Lands: Cinema, Geography, Modernism
by Sam Rohdie
An attempt to locate cinema alongside philosophy, painting, geography and travel in terms of a history of modernism. The book focuses on a collection of geographical and ethnographic films and photographs amassed by banker Albert Kahn, in the 1900s--arguably an instance of French modernism.
