    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    By discussing the politics of commemorating cinema in India, this essay reflects upon the value invested in the institution of cinema itself on the part of the state. The material, symbolic, and discursive investment in cinematic anniversaries indicates how the significance of cinema transcends questions of form, content, and viewing experience and reveals cinema's capacity to be metonymic of national or cultural identity.
