CINE 323 - Theory and History of Global Cinema

FC ARHU CD WINT

Not only was cinema the global mass medium of the twentieth century, but now globalization has come to be the defining characteristic of cinema in the twenty-first century. This course provides a critical framework for studying contemporary cinema by introducing students to theoretical debates about the category of “global cinema” through historical analysis of film production, distribution, and reception globally. We will attend to the history of internationalism in cinema from its earliest days to the contemporary moment, the role of film festivals in defining a global cinema aesthetics, and transnational influences in popular cinema industries across the world.
