FILM 42.13 Global Documentary and Transnational Cinema

Since the Lumière Brothers first began dispatching camera operators around the world to shoot actualité films over a century ago, documentary film and video have played a major historical role in constructing and mediating popular understandings of the global. This course considers that history, from its origins in ethnographic documentary to contemporary IMAX films and YouTube videos.  In assessing the wider implications of documentary’s relation to the global, selected transnational fiction films will also be screened and discussed.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
