This course will examine Buddhism in the twentieth-century through film. Students will be asked to explore the tension between East and West, tradition and progress, fantasy and reality as it unfolds in different representations of Buddhism. In order to capture the global scale of these tensions, we will watch a variety of select international and domestic films that differ in both genre and content. With the help of supplemental readings, we will reflect upon how Buddhism has been imagined and transformed on screen and what the medium of film contributes to this process. Students will be expected to write weekly essays (1-2 pages) and a final paper (7-10 pages) that demonstrate their ability to perform critical analysis of the films and supplementary readings.
