Issues in Film Studies 2: Global Film Cultures
Module details for 2009 cohort.
FHEQ Level 4
Building on the autumn term core, this course continues to examine modes of film making and cinematic contexts from a range of national settings and historical moments. Students will both expand their knowledge of different cinematic practices, and deepen their skills of textual and contextual analysis.
By the end of the course, a successful student should be able to:
1. Explain and summarise underlying principles in the study of cinema, including its economic, institutional, formal and ideological constraints.
2. Identify and evaluate critical approaches to film including those which engage with cultural representation, formations of identity and the politics of taste.
3. Apply selective knowledges and develop a line of argument in answering set questions in written form.
