Transnational Trends in Recent European Cinema

This course situates European film within “transnational” contexts of film production, exhibition, and reception. It suggests that national cinemas do not exist in isolation, but are shaped by external stylistic influences. These include filmmaker and star mobility; transnational production practices which cross film cultures; and the growing impact of a more global film economy on national film industries.

The course examines the complex network of cross-cultural, economic and artistic exchanges which have taken place within British, French and Spanish national film industries. It focuses on the blending of local and global trends which produce what can be described as “transnational” or “postnational” films.
