Angelo Restivo is Associate Professor and Director of Graduate Studies in the Moving Image Studies Program at Georgia State University.  He is the author of The Cinema of Economic Miracles:  Visuality and Modernization in the Italian Art Film.  His current book project, Mapping the Virtual, studies the emergence and development of a new type of art cinema image from the 1970s to the present, and examines the ways in which the cinema maps out the new geopolitical and affective spaces of global capital.
