MDST 3310 - East Asian Cinema


This course examines the contemporary East Asian cinemas of China, Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan, with a focus on their critical visualization and deconstruction of nation. East Asian cinema cannot be understood outside the context of transnationalism, in light of the cross-pollination of culture, history, politics, and bodies that unite these Asian nations. In this course, students will be introduced to key filmmakers and their emergent new cinemas, industrial practices and national exchanges, as well as the historical, political, industrial and cultural events that gave rise to these globally influential transnational cinemas.
