The first book to examine the work of this radical, influential filmmaker.

TERROR AND JOY: The Films of Dusan Makavejev
Lorraine Mortimer
University of Minnesota Press | 352 pages | 2009
ISBN 978-0-8166-4886-3 | hardcover | $75.00
ISBN 978-0-8166-4887-0 | paperback | $25.00

Dusan Makavejev is a filmmaker, teacher, and intellectual whose films 
intersect with major historical and political upheavals in Eastern 
Europe-World War II, the unification and breakup of Yugoslavia, and 
the fall of communism. Subversive and moving, his films remain 
touchstones for transcultural and political cinema. Matching the 
intensity of the films, Lorraine Mortimer takes a radically 
interdisciplinary approach in this first book-length critical 
analysis of Makavejev's work.

"Lorraine Mortimer has a profound understanding of Makavejev's 
filmmaking, and she illustrates and explains his methods and 
objectives with clarity, passion, verve, and a sense of humor. Terror 
and Joy is likely to spur many retrospective screenings of 
Makaveyev's oeuvre, further research on his innovative film 
structures, and increased attention to his pioneering work in courses 
on East European cinema and on film theory." -Herbert Eagle, 
University of Michigan

Lorraine Mortimer is a senior lecturer in sociology and anthropology 
at La Trobe University, Victoria, Australia. She is the translator of 
Edgar Morin's The Cinema, or The Imaginary Man (University of 
Minnesota Press, 2005).
