Her work offers a thorough and much-needed historical textualisation of those moments and relocates them them in their wider political and cultural context. Beginning with an `ecohistory of the French film industry, she then traces the various movements in French cinema and the directors associated with them, including the avant-garde, Poetic-Realist, New Wave and todays postmodern cinema.

Her analysis includes, amongst other considerations, the social and political concerns these cinemas reflect.
