National and Transnational Cinema - FILM3004

Year - 2020

What does it mean to acquire a global perspective on film? How does a global perspective on film affect our understanding of film culture? This unit surveys cinema from around the world to piece together a picture of film culture derived from the close analysis of contemporary film form, style criticism and theory. Particular focus will be placed on the complex relation of the film text and the film audience. How do films address multiple and diverse audiences from different places with different histories and identities?
