CINE 119 - Exilic Cinema

FC ARHU CD
4 credits
This course surveys global cinema through the lens of immigration, expatriation, and diaspora. It considers works ranging from Charlie Chaplins The Immigrant to the experimental filmmaker Sylvain Georges recent meditations on the migrant encampments in Calais. In investigating the uses of cinema to portray, and reflect, human displacement by the forces of neo-imperialism and global capitalism, we will address multiple geographies and practices, including global art cinemas, industrial narrative cinema, experimental films, and works created for the gallery. In considering the political and aesthetic stakes of exilic cinema, we will draw from cultural studies, continental philosophy, and film theory.
