The channels of circulation described here are still being studied independently from one another. Yet, there is a growing and overarching acknowledgment that they increasingly interact and interlink, in a hybrid and flexible, mercurial and mutating manner. The result is a more complicated picture, one that leads us to the realisation that it is necessary to underpin the argument by dynamically correlating the peripheral strategies of global cinema.
