This course surveys key cultural and technological developments in cinema of the last 50 years, from post World War II Italian Neorealism and the French New Wave (Nouvelle Vague) in the sixties to the rise of digital cinema at the end of the 20th century. Although the class considers a variety of industry practices, including the evolution of American cinema from classical to new Hollywood films, the emphasis will be on film traditions including those of Africa, Asia and the Caribbean. Topics to include the role of colonialism, global relationships and inequities, neorealism (with its use of locations and amateurs and its hybrid of fiction and documentary), the rise of the notion of the "auteur" and the idea of film as a form of individual expression, new modes of political cinema, and the uses and distribution of digital video. Note: This course may be taken independently of Movements in World Cinema 1.
