COM 342 - World Cinema (4 Cr.)

(GCR RPP)(GCR Humanities and Interdisciplinary Studies area)
This course will explore significant international film traditions, movements, and cultures of the past century. Mapping film’s evolution worldwide through consideration of influential national film movements and key directors, and their historical, political, aesthetic, and cultural contexts, we will contemplate how cinema translates local traditions and circulates transformative ideas. We will explore debates around audiences and authorship, transnational production and cross-cultural appropriation, film and/as sociopolitical resistance, and the roles of film critics and festivals, digital technologies, and globalization. Prerequisite: COM 105 , COM 232 , and COM 262 , by the beginning of the course; or permission of instructor. Fall semester. Program faculty
