FILM 4495 Asian Cinema (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

This class explores recent films from China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, South Korea, Japan, and India. Films will be approached through a variety of critical perspectives, including formalism, auteurism, and historicism. We will watch art films, commercial films, and films that fall between these two categories. We will ask how Asian film industries have been affected by globalization and how national cinemas are becoming increasing transnational. Note: Required weekly film screening Wednesdays 7 – 9 PM.
