152. MEDST 146: History of Cinema III: 1970 - present

Contact:Amy Herzog
Abstract:This course will provide a survey of the development of world cinema from the
1970s to the present, examining institutional and aesthetic shifts in the film
industry, as well as significant international movements and genres (the rise
of New American Cinema, Latin American Third Cinema, Hong Kong action genres,
African film, and the implementation of digital technologies).
Cinema III builds on the foundation in cinema history set out in MEDST 143 and
144. Readings and class discussions will consider the historical, political,
aesthetic, and cultural contexts of these cinematic trends, and will present an
overview of the development of film criticism and theory during this period.
By the end of the course, students will be familiar with the transformations in
global cinema; they will identify links between the industries in various
regions, understand the growing importance of film festivals in the circulation
of film texts, study the importance of experimental and underground cinema
movements, and learn about the impact of new media on contemporary cinema.
