504    Includes bibliographical references (pages 243-266) and 
520    "From Bangladesh and Hong Kong to Iran and South Africa, 
       film industries around the world are rapidly growing at a 
       time when new digital technologies are fundamentally 
       changing how films are made and viewed. Larger film 
       industries like Bollywood and Nollywood aim to attain 
       Hollywood's audience and profitability while smaller, less
       commercial, and often state-funded enterprises support 
       various cultural and political projects. The contributors 
       to Anthropology, Film Industries, Modularity take an 
       ethnographic and comparative approach to capturing the 
       diversity and growth of global film industries. They 
       outline how modularity-the specialized filmmaking tasks 
       that collectively produce a film-operates as a key feature
       in every film industry independent of local context. 
       Whether examining the process of dubbing Hollywood films 
       into Hindi, virtual reality filmmaking in South Africa, or
       on-location shooting in Yemen, the contributors' 
       anthropological methodology brings into relief both the 
       universal practices and the local contingencies and deeper
       cultural realities of film production in new ways.
