BLST 0224 - African Cinema
*African Cinema* In this course we will examine how films written and directed by African filmmakers address the evolving identities of post-colonial Africans. Students will explore the development of various national cinemas and the film movements that helped define African cinema as a tool for cultural expression and social change. We will pair film studies, post-colonial studies, and African studies readings with a diverse selection of films from across sub-Saharan Africa, from Senegal’s 1967 /Black Girl/ (Ousmane Sembene) to the 2018 Netflix-produced Nigerian “Nollywood” film, /Lionheart/ (Genevieve Nnaji). 3 hours lect./3 hours screen.
