In her new book Early Cinema, Modernity and Visual Culture. The Imaginary of the Balkans, Ana Grgić defines the region as a cultural entity captured at the turn of the twentieth century – a period marked by the culture of modernity sweeping Europe and the emergence of the moving pictures. This methodological approach contributes to breaking a longstanding tradition in the field of early and silent cinema studies focused on the ‘national’.
