WHAT DO I DO?

You will compare two films and produce a 10-minute multimedia comparison of them.

The first film you chose needs to be from a context unfamiliar to you. (Basically, avoid contemporary American mainstream film.) The second film should then be from another context again. You might start with a focus like this:

  • Film movements (such as French New Wave, German expressionism, Third Cinema, and so on)

  • Film genre and film style (such as film noir, romantic comedy, science fiction, Western, and so on)

  • Film theory (such as auteur theory, feminism, Marxist film theory, and so on)

When you are thinking of contexts, consider these:

  • Economic

  • Geographical

  • Historical

  • Institutional

  • Political

  • Social

  • Technological
