This innovative study focuses on Paris and London, two of the most iconic and represented cities on celluloid, as 'migrant cities', featuring the arrival, settlement and departure of migrant figures stemming from the decline of imperial rule to the present day. Drawing upon examples from contemporary British and French cinema, including the work of Michael Haneke, Claire Denis and Horace Ov, this book explores the sights and sounds of 'migrant' London and Paris, providing entirely new ways of visualizing and conceptualizing the cities we think we already know.
