Contemporary Cinema

This course focuses on special topics in contemporary cinema, which will change from semester to semester. Through recent films from manifold different regions, nations and cultures, and using a variety of theoretical and analytical approaches, the themes explored in this course in its various iterations will include (but are not limited to) the rich contemporary history of global filmmaking, both in the traditional Hollywood models and outside the more familiar declinations of the mainstream; the study of the evolution of film form within complex technological, industrial, and cultural representational systems; the changing aesthetic and economic interface between national, regional, and global cinemas and experiences; and the dialectical relationship between new and old, innovation and tradition, self and other.
