On Screenwriting and Love and Politics is a book by screenwriter Aviva Butt that invites the reader to take an up-close view at writing a film script. Written in an engaging and literary style, the book attempts to illuminate the emotions, theories and process that go into creating a screenplay. As a special appendix, the book includes the author’s latest full-length screenplay “Blue Mist.” About this screenplay, she comments: “I write about love and politics. My screenplays are theatrical feature films on Middle Eastern subjects. This time with my screenplay 'Blue Mist,' the world situation and the Middle East come to New Zealand.” The book also features an introduction from Gaetano Nino Martinetti, an award-winning cinematographer who contributes his views on the role of cinematography in making movies.
