-  This course explores key artistic movements, genres, and filmmakers from Asia (China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan, South Korea, and India) in the contemporary age. As we examine specific contexts from which such cinemas are created, we also interrogate transnational connections in narrative, co-production, circulation, and cross-cultural and historical intimacies. Finally, we will learn and apply various theoretical and philosophical approaches with which to analyze films form and content.
