ENGL329Y - Special Topics in Film Studies; A Cinema of Migration as Message
Cinema of Migration as Message explores migration and its impact on changes to cultures and people, related both to those who migrate and those whose lives and societies are affected by migrations.  Issues of conflict, struggle, assimilation, acceptance and more by host countries or groups make up vital parts of the film narrative; this course will explore the films of various filmmakers with an emphasis on the different countries they select to present and whether these countries are a part of the First World, Second World, Third World or Fourth World.
