Description: Japanese cinema has changed radically since the 1980s: independent productions are now a commercial standard; a new home entertainment market irrevocably transformed patterns of consumption; an increasingly global market for Japanese (and, more broadly, Asian) ...film has generated the equivalent of "brand name recognition" at a new level of popularity worldwide. Concurrent demographic, socio-political, and economic changes have ruptured conventional conceptions of national identity; Japan has in particular been forced to reconsider it 20th century identity crisis as part of Asia. This course explores how recent films reflect such developments (e.g., reworking and reinterpreting once familiar genres) and the significance of contemporary works within the broader context of a global market (e.g., the singular popularity of specific genres like Horror, as well as the broad diversity such phenomena can conceal).
