Cinematic Landscapes of Asia

Course No. HCS 387X  Credits: 3.0

This discussion/writing-style course is to explore contemporary films of Asia, focusing on India, China (Taiwan & Hong Kong), & Japan. The films serve as a window of global understanding in culture. Through assigned films, political, social, literary and visual aspects of these nations will be stressed in this course. Mini-lectures will be also provided occasionally to prepare the students in understanding the historical and cultural references in the contexts of contemporary Asian films. For writing assignments, each student is encouraged to self-express and self-identify through viewing the films and sophisticate responses in their writings/reports/critics of the films. The class is divided into 2 components: film viewing and discussion/lectures.
