Signs of Life is a useful introduction to the study of medical cinema...The politics of public health, genetic engineering and the medical profession come in for close attention in almost every essay here, and that is surely the highlight of an engaging volume.--Parmod K. Nayar "Scope "
A welcome addition to the growing body of literature in this intriguing field.--Michael Richardson "Cineaste "
Signs of Life explores the political implications of the representations of doctors, nurses, patients, diseases and disabilities, and considers how formal qualities of cinema - empirical observation, mise-en-scene, propaganda and education, melodrama, documentary, narrative construction - impact on our understanding of medical procedures and the public image of medicine.See all Product description
