Overview Overview
 

This module examines debates and films classified under the rubric of Global Cinema. Since the 1920s, US cinema has dominated cinema screens around the world, while European cinemas have most often defined themselves in national terms and/or in relation to such art practices as neorealism, impressionism and expressionism. Cinema beyond these US- and Eurocentric models has often been ghettoized as the consumption category “world cinema.” Moving beyond these categories, this module focuses on film and filmmaking practices that meaningfully address the global, examining how a medium consisting of moving images and recorded sound engages with experiences of international mobility, border crossing, migration and population flows.
