Double Book Giveaway! The Cinema of Richard Linklater and The Cinema of Steven Soderbergh

The Cinema of Stephen SoderberghThe Cinema of Richard Linklater

Remember the ’90s? I do but if you don’t, there are two new books on two of the decade’s directorial stars who helped to shape and define American independent film. However, these directors are more than just remnants of the past. For the past two decades they’ve created some of the most compelling films of recent years. Moreover, they’ve both very much been in the news lately with one capping off a remarkable trilogy and the other announcing his retiremnet but not before directing a critically acclaimed film about a certain Vegas pianist.

We are of course talking about Richard Linklater and Steven Soderbergh and the two books are the aptly titled: The Cinema of Richard Linklater: Walk, Don’t Run, by Rob Stone and The Cinema of Steven Soderbergh: Indie Sex, Corporate Lies, and Digital Videotape, by Andrew deWaard and R. Colin Tait

Throughout the week, we will be featuring the books on our blog as well as on our Twitter feed, and on our Facebook page.

We are also offering a FREE copy of both books to a lucky winner.

To enter our Book Giveaway, simply e-mail pl2164@columbia.edu with your name and preferred mailing address. We will randomly select one winner on June 7 at 1:00 pm. Good luck, and spread the word!
