This introduction presents an overview of the key concepts discussed in the subsequent chapters of this book. The book emphasises different thematic concerns and approaches to the idea of cinematic countrysides. It explores the idea of the nationhood and how cinematic countrysides frame the occupancy and experience of border zones: those rural environments that bring the relationship between state, subject and cultural identity into sharp relief. The book also explores a largely uncharted tradition of national cinema of North Korean film. It represents an important intervention into debates about the internationalisation of economic activities and the real and imagined effects that come from attracting mobile investment into rural locales. The book examines the wider processes of production/consumption that surround the representation of countrysides in film. It addresses alternative ways of interpreting and practising cinematic countrysides.
