    Beschreibung "This project about directorial talent in Hollywood starts out with an analytical question. The initial goal is to see how we can position this blockbuster-era global talent within a wider historical context of ‘émigré’ directors in Hollywood. I have set off to answer this question through the analysis of the data I have collected. However, while considering various answers, I noticed that a second, more complex
    issue had arisen: What does the flow of this talent tell us about cinema in the globalized world, especially vis-à-vis the positions of Hollywood and various national cinemas? In the following pages, I will extend my inquiry by also examining the relationship between Hollywood and its ‘other’s, as well as emerging patterns in world cinema in relation to filmmakers. My use of the word ‘global’ directors instead of ‘émigré’ or even ‘foreign’ is deliberate, due to a number of reasons. I will not employ the term ‘émigré’, since I aim to distinguish my work from the research done about the earlier generation of filmmakers who emigrated to the US in the 1930s and the early 1940s, also because ‘émigré’ connotes an act of relocating for good, and leaving the old country behind. Many of the directors, especially in the post-1975 era, have chosen to move between countries1. The use of ‘foreign’ to describe these filmmakers has been quite common in the last decades. After all, many film professionals work on films in Hollywood, outside of their nation of origin; and to do so, they need a special permit to enter and work in the US, as I will describe below. Nonetheless, while the filmmakers I am concerned with
    are initially identified by their nationality as ‘foreign’, I will demonstrate that this foreignness does not go beyond a basic preliminary identification." (Information des Anbieters)
