Abstract

What is the ‘bi’ in bicultural? It is clearly a concept that establishes a binary between a this and a that, one culture and another culture, one language and another language, conceived in their broadest terms. But can it be more concrete than a concept? Or to reprise and subvert the title of Homi Bhabha’s book, The Location of Culture (1994), what is the location of the bicultural? This question is of particular interest because researchers in Film Studies, influenced by architecture, cultural geography and critical theory, have increasingly addressed space and place since the 1990s. Is there a typically bicultural space in filmic representations, and if so what are its characteristics?
