In this course you will study the complex field of cinema studies encompassed by the term 'National Cinema'.

You will learn to engage with a variety of debates that have taken place at the intersection between cinema and nation, and you will learn to apply other related concepts such as nationalism, citizenship, globalisation and transnationalism to the study of specific films. Through the case study of one or more national cinema, you will be encouraged to 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.
