In this course we discuss a number of contemporary theories from 1970s onwards. The three key conceptual domains in the literature are the postmodern, post-classical and post-colonial discourse through the writings of a wide range of acclaimed scholars. By discussing and analyzing a selection of films from World cinema, we aim to explore questions such as “what are the arguments of the postmodern turn in theory and practice,” “what are the changes in American and international cinema after the exhaustion of the norms of classical storytelling,” and “what is the relation of post-colonial nations with the cinema in an increasingly globalized creative environment.” This course is in the form of a seminar and the presence of students is mandatory to the 70% of the lectures.
