The introduction lays out how this book, much as Audiard’s cinema itself, focuses on the motifs of the border and the body that crosses it. It covers some of the broader themes of Audiard’s border-crossing filmmaking, and his history of reworking the conventions of auteur and genre cinemas. It provides an overview of his career trajectory, and his screenwriting, editing, production and finally directing roles, as well as his collaborative working practices. The introduction situates Audiard at the intersection of a French cinematic heritage and international filmmaking contexts, before moving on to a presentation of the analysis chapters. These are entitled ‘Body’, ‘Society’ and ‘Globe’, and delve deeper into how Audiard’s eternal border-crossing manifests in, and defines, his films themselves.
