This point is emphasized by a presentation and analysis of how various professional and non-professional filmmakers from Colombia, Egypt, Greece and Turkey made use of film at the Stockholm Film Workshop in order to intervene in their new cultural situations. Thus, the textual model of film analysis that is prevalent in Hamid Naficy’s seminal work on accented cinema is complemented with theories of cultural production in order to enable an analysis of a transnational film practice that is on a par with the immigrant experience.
