The cover of Bad Film Histories by Katherine GrooBy Katherine Groo

In Bad Film Histories, Katherine Groo, assistant professor of film and media studies, challenges conventional ways of thinking and writing about early film history and breaks important new ground in understanding archives.

Publisher University of Minnesota Press writes: “Her examination of ethnographic cinema provides necessary new thought for both film scholars and those who are thrilled by cinema’s boundless possibilities. In so doing, she boldly reexamines what early ethnographic cinema is and how these films produce meaning.”
