19-20 ML2101: International Film II: Readings and Representations

This course is designed to follow on from your first-year core courses. You will study a range of innovative European and non-European films that will help to define the nature and meaning of ‘international cinema’ while deepening your understanding of key aspects of film theory. The course explores in particular the notion of ‘European’ and ‘non-European’ film (eg Hollywood, Latin American) within a more general discussion of European, American/Latin American history and culture. The course also encourages critical thinking and articulate analysis of aspects of film style, genre and context through close textual reading.
