From Ancient Greek ethno- (people) + -scape

Examples

  • Whether the background is the local village or the Cretan landscape, Cacoyiannis' cinema is decisively ethnographic, depicting the culture of the peasants as an insular, contained ethnoscape, often playing to Western expectations by promoting the image of an exotic Modern Greece, as seen in the perpetuation of primitivist stereotypes in Zorba, and the exploration of the rural in melodramas dealing with family issues, such as A Girl in Black.
