Key issues in political history are explored through the work of independent filmmakers and video producers, web-based activist and art projects and installation works. A rich range of work will be discussed, including influences of the Third Cinema movement, documentary strategies and experimental and hybrid projects. Issues addressed include global and local economies, environmental issues and colonial legacies, and their intersections with discourses of racialized and gendered bodies. Class discussion is an important part of the course, supported by pertinent readings. Students begin research applicable to their own projects.
