Subject Area: Film Studies

This course will examine the complex field of cinema studies encompassed by the term 'National Cinema'.
The course will engage with a variety of debates around the intersection between cinema and nation, as well as with related concepts such as nationalism, citizenship, globalisation and transnationalism. Through the case study of one or more national cinema, the course will consider how particular national cinemas - as both industries and cultural products - are determined by historical, political and cultural contexts, and how these contexts may affect the aesthetic and stylistic concerns of particular films and filmmakers.
