FR 1079 - CINEMA AND THE POSTCOLONIAL


Minimum Credits: 3
Maximum Credits: 3
This course draws on films from areas formerly colonized by France to explore the complex and frequently contested notion of the postcolonial. Through theoretical readings and analysis of films from North and sub-Saharan Africa and Vietnam, we will explore the shift from a binary model of colonizer/colonized to a recognition of the uneven, unsettled relations both within and between former colonies and the metropole. Introduction to concepts of film analysis and critical writing practice will encourage interrogation of your own viewing expectations along with the films on view.
