Dream Factories of A Former Colony
Dream Factories of A Former Colony: American Fantasies, Philippine Cinema by Jose B. Capino offers an innovative account of cinema's cultural work in decolonization and globalization by tracking American fantasies in Filipino movies from the post-independence period to the present. Through close readings of more than twenty Philippine movies, Capino demonstrates the postcolonial imagination's vital role in generating pragmatic and utopian visions of living with empire. Illuminating an important but understudied cinema, he creates a model for understanding the image of the United States in the third world.
