Location Analysis

This section looks at the aesthetic production of European sites through location analyses of 100 films from the Hindi, Bengali, Tamil, and Malayalam film industries. We have moved from descriptions of iconic monuments and the weather to emotions and moods that connect with certain sites; we look at the role of body, technology, and the sonic power of music in enhancing the perception of place; and we look at simulations of sites that have become inaccessible for shooting. We engage with particular scenes, including intricate camera work, colour, costumes, sound design, and other aspects of mise-en-scene. The cinematic rendering of locations shows us how place is produced through techniques that foster spatial imaginations that are expressive of a range of emotional registers. This is a form of cinematic cartography that shows how following the trail of locations on screen can foreground parallel or alternative imaginations of place and space.
