Although it can feel marginalised by mainstream cinema, 'World Cinema' often seems to be successful in the West when it deals with individuals or groups who are in some way dispossessed or ignored. This new course looks at examples, at their contexts, at their marketing and at similarities and differences in theme and style.
No prior knowledge is required.
Each class will consist of an introductory talk, viewing of full-length film and discussion.
