GSWS594 - INDEPENDENT WOMEN'S CINE: INDEPENDENT WOMEN'S CINEMA: AESTHETICS, POLITICS, AND INSTITUTIONS

The concept of women's cinema, with its ambiguities--by women, or for women? --has been debated within feminist film scholarship for three decades. Does it still have salience within post feminist popular culture? With a focus on genealogies of women's independent filmmaking and in the contemporary context of changing technologies and critical cultures, this course looks at authorship and aesthetics, festivals and nonprofits, and the ambivalent relation between US independent cinema and Hollywood on the one hand and constructions of "world cinema" on the other.
