This course is an introduction to Chinese film and visual culture from the earliest days until the present. Chinese film and media studies are rich fields with links to literature, theater and opera, and visual art. This class invites students to watch, read, and discuss films from several periods and traditions, including auteur films (films by famous directors), genre films (for example, martial arts films), and animated films. This is a film and media studies course. Students will be graded for discussion and participation, short response papers, and one final written essay. This course is taught in English. The films are subtitled in English and the readings are also in English. There are no prerequisites for this course, just an interest in Chinese film and visual culture.
