Duke University Press is pleased to announce the publication of a new 
book of interest to Screen-L subscribers.

In Displaced Allegories: Post-Revolutionary Iranian Cinema, Negar 
Mottahedeh shows that post-Revolutionary Iranian filmmakers were forced 
to create a new visual language for conveying meaning to audiences. She 
argues that the Iranian film industry found creative ground not in the 
negation of government regulations but in the camera’s adoption of the 
modest, averted gaze. In the process, the filmic techniques and 
cinematic technologies were gendered as feminine and the national cinema 
was produced as a woman’s cinema.
