Kerr, Paul ORCID logoORCID: (2010) Babel's network narrative: packaging a globalized art cinema. Transnational Cinemas, 1 (1) . pp. 37-51. ISSN 2040-3526 [Article] (doi:10.1386/trac.1.1.37/1)


This essay argues that the current prevalence in international art cinema of the network narrative, exemplified here by Babel (Irritu, 2006), can be explained through analysis of the mode and social relations of production characterizing the global film and media companies involved in making such films.
