ITA345H1: Cinema of the Italian Diasporas

Hours: 
24L/36P

This course will examine how several filmmakers of Italian descent engage with the representation of their diasporic identity. Particular emphasis will be placed on Italian-Canadian and Italian-American cinema, as well as on Italian cineastes working in Argentina, Brazil, and Australia. The course will analyze films that span from silent to contemporary, from the formation of the stereotypical images to the re-appropriation of archetypes on the part of "ethnic" filmmakers. This course includes a component designed to enhance students' research experience.(Given in English)
