Anti-requisite(s): 58323 Contemporary World Cinema


This subject focuses on key developments in global cinema with an emphasis on films that challenge students to think critically and creatively about the world in which they live. Through an engagement with films from a range of national and cultural contexts, students develop a critical vocabulary for thinking about the role that cinema can play in cultivating an ethically minded mode of engagement via which the status quo is called into question. Drawing on recent debates in screen studies, students reflect on the role that innovations in film form can play in prompting audiences to consider how and with what effects the world could be transformed for the better.
