Mythology of Violence

The Mythology of Violence by Beste Birer is a series of six books that together form “a perusal of violence in cinema over six directors”.

Each book looks at the work of a different director, with fold-out stills from their films interspersed between the pages that cleverly represent reoccurring themes or techniques within their work:
