Media Heterotopias and Science Fiction: Transnational Workflows and Transgalactic Spaces in Digitally Composited Ecosystems

Reframes science fiction cinema as a global genre

Simultaneous Worlds challenges the notion that science fiction cinema is largely a Western genre by focusing on cinemas and cultures from Cuba to North Korea that are not traditionally associated with science fiction. This is the first volume to bring a transnational, interdisciplinary lens to science fiction cinema.
