Description

Global Cinema examines the key themes, production techniques, and cultural contexts that shape contemporary world cinemas. Students become familiar with different national and regional cinematic traditions, develop critical vocabularies for understanding and interpreting cinematic storytelling devices, and consider the role that cinema plays in addressing social inequalities and injustices. The subject also invites students to explore diverse forms of film-making, which may include high-budget national cinemas, films by Indigenous communities and film-makers, independent and experimental film-making, multilingual and diasporic cinemas, cinema as political activism, and documentary cinema (among others). Throughout, students are given opportunities to focus on specific elements within film-making processes, including narrative, genre, and characterisation; cinematography, editing, lighting, sound, and production design; and the industrial contexts of production, distribution, and reception.
