This module explores the situation of contemporary Japanese cinema. The students will first be given an overview of Japanese film history in order to gain some insight into the contemporary film industry. They will then focus on selected contemporary directors, such as Shinya Tsukamoto, Mamoru Oshii and Takeshi Kitano, to investigate the directions Japanese filmmakers are taking and how their films reflect social and cultural issues. The late afternoon slot assigned to this module is a film screening.
