Where in the world are women making movies and for whom? What is the critical force of contemporary women’s cinema? What do these films and makers mean for the future of feminism and of cinema? What are the global cartographies of contemporary cine-feminism? This seminar attempts to answer these questions through the study of women cineastes, who make films about women, in a range of worldwide contexts. Drawing on fiction films, from the first two decades of the twenty-first century, the course addresses different sites of women’s film practice including filmmakers from Argentina, Australia, France, India, Iran, Lebanon, New Zealand, Pakistan, Peru, Saudi Arabia and the United States. Through readings and discussions, we will learn to contextualize the varied media production contexts that range from emergent film industries to transnational coproduction arrangements. Recognizing how these films remain responsive to both national audiences and transnational concerns, we will also attempt to map the multiple flows of cross-cultural consumption by addressing the international film festival circuit, DVD labels, film blogs and Internet streaming sites. The readings located at the intersection of transnational feminist and transnational media studies, will draw on the interdisciplinary scholarship in postcolonial, cultural, race and ethnic, and diaspora studies. The assignments will encourage the students to grasp the imaginative possibilities of this critical body of work.

What makes a movie interesting, pleasurable, engaging, emotionally affecting, thought-provoking, or beautiful? How does a film’s design affect our cinematic experience? Film researchers working in aesthetics seek to answer these questions, and some researchers have extended the investigation in exciting directions, illuminating not just film aesthetics but also related issues in philosophy, psychology, history, technology and the film industry. This course showcases different approaches to film aesthetics, illustrating the potential of this work to illuminate key aspects of the cinema. We will study a range of scholarship (from film studies, psychology, and philosophy) and watch movies that offer a variety of aesthetic experiences. Wherever we are in the course, we will not be far from our central question and the only question about the cinema that I think much about: What is it about the movies people enjoy that makes people enjoy them?
