Studies in Global Film History: Indian Cinemas - 10935 - FST 375 - 001

All students are expected to attend and participate in person at the assigned day/time. (F2F)

Pre- or co-requisite: FST 205

This course is designed to introduce the different periods, forms and idioms of the Indian cinemas to both those who are initiating their study of Indian cinema and those who are interested in contextualizing and expanding their current understanding of the cinematic medium within the Indian subcontinent. The course aims to (i) provide a systematic introduction to the historical and linguistic range of production that Indian cinema studies attempts to address (ii) introduce the key films, directors, stars, genres, formal techniques and themes of Indian cinema and (iii) emphasize the inter dynamic relationship between India’s regional, national and global cinema. The course intends to introduce both, Indian popular and art cinema, while contextualizing the many terms swirling around these disparate practices, particularly, “Bollywood.” The films included come from regional language industries, beyond Bombay, that includes Bengali and Tamil auteurs. Starting with the silent period, the course moves chronologically, through the decades, to the contemporary period: all the while providing a political, economic, social and cultural background to the universe of these plural film practices. The required readings encompass a multidisciplinary approach to the study of cinema in India and include both conceptual and historical writings on the different aspects of Indian cinema. The lectures along with the readings intend to introduce students to the predominant critical approaches in the field of Indian cinema studies. The writing component of the course encourages students to develop their skills of analysis and interpretation to address either/both formal questions (such as issues of aesthetics, narrative, genre, visual style) and socio-cultural questions (such as issues of representation, tradition/modernity, private/public, nationalism, globalization et cetera).
