Chris Holmlund loves movies of all kinds. She's written on American independent film, action blockbusters, Hollywood features from the 1970s on, stars, experimental film, and documentary. She's interested in feminist, post-colonial, and queer theory, as also in classic film theory. She teaches courses in all these areas, as well as on American independent film and French and Latin American/Latino film and video. She occasionally publishes on French, Canadian, Latin American, and Scandinavian film as well, and is active in the leadership of the Society for Cinema and Media Studies (3000+ members from over 50 countries).
