This course examines the history of modern Korea through cinematic representations. In examining different genres such as historical drama, melodrama, epic, and documentary, we deal with films produced as early as the mid 1930s as well as recent productions of today. These films should offer a lens through which to critically view Korean history of colonialism, liberation, the Korean War, nation-building, authoritarianism, industrialization, democratization, and globalization. The topics of our discussion include family, sexuality, gender, cultural tradition, colonial and democratic resistance, individualism, social movement, and the city and the country. We will attempt to read history through the visual representation of personal and collective stories, and situate them within the context of their production and reception.
