outside film screening essay | English homework help

 

Write a 5-7 page (double spaced) essay answering one of the following 3 prompts:

1) Watch a Bollywood film at a local movie theater. With regard to both the film and the viewing experience (including the audience), make an argument about how the film experience expresses both Indian and global desires. AMC Theatres (especially Fashion Valley) are a great place to look for new Bollywood films. Additionally, you may consider the following films, which are available online:

  • Gully Boy (Zoya Akhtar, India) (Amazon Prime)
  • Kapoor & Sons (Shakun Batra, India) (for rent on Amazon, Google Play, YouTube, iTunes)

2) Watch a non-U.S. “festival film” in theaters and find reviews and program notes for it online. How does the writing express the contradictions of formula vs. freedom and national vs. universal discussed in the reading and lecture? Landmark Theatres, Digital Gym Cinema, and Cine Tonalá (Tijuana) regularly screen international films that have played the international film festival circuit. Please contact the instructor if you have questions identifying eligible films. Additionally, you can consider the following films available online:

  • Atlantics (Mati Diop, Senegal/France) (Netflix)
  • Too Late to Die Young (Dominga Sotomayor, Chile) (for rent on Amazon, iTunes)
  • Shoplifters (Hirokazu Kore-eda, Japan) (Hulu, and for rent on Amazon, Google Play, YouTube, iTunes)
  • Happy as Lazzaro (Alice Rohrwacher, Italy) (Netflix)

3) Watch a new Korean or Chinese blockbuster at a local movie theater. Make an argument about how the film expresses local, national, inter-Asian, and/or global characteristics (must choose at least two of the four). Note: because of the Coronavirus, new releases in Korea and China have dwindled, and that has affected their international releases as well. It may be harder to find films in theaters, but a place to start is AMC La Jolla. Additionally, you may consider the following films, which are available online:

  • 1987: When the Day Comes (Jang Joon-hwan, South Korea) (for rent on Amazon, Google Play, YouTube)
  • A Taxi Driver (Jang Hoon, South Korea) (Hulu, and for rent on Amazon, Google Play, YouTube)
  • Miss Granny (Hwang Dong-hyuk, South Korea) (Amazon Prime, and for rent on iTunes, Google Play, YouTube)
  • The Wandering Earth (Frant Gwo, China) (Netflix)
  • Us and Them (Rene Liu, China) (Netflix)
  • Youth (Feng Xiaogang, China) (Amazon Prime)

You must submit your 5-7 page paper via the Turnitin tool in the “Essays” section in Blackboard.
