EAS394H1: Film Culture in Contemporary China

Hours

36L

This course discusses documentary film and DV culture in contemporary China as forms of cultural, communal, and political practices. We focus on films and videos that seek to address important global issues such as peace, environment, and climate change in cross-media approach and in personal tone. We ask: What new tendencies are there in the films and videos? Where can we trace them back to? What fresh possibilities do they bring forth to our aesthetic and public life?
