India is the world's largest producer of films in over 20 languages, and Bollywood is currently its most visible cinematic product, especially on US university curricula. We will examine how Bollywood creates a unique mode of spectacle and invites analyses of pleasure and popularity, stardom and performance, gender and space, color and sound. The course will also introduce you to the rich corpus of art and experimental cinemas from India. Through a range of films, we will explore how this postcolonial, rapidly globalizing region engages with questions of queerness, caste, and religion. Given this course's emphasis on close cinematic analysis, we will analyze formal aspects of cinematography, editing, mise-en-scène, and performance, and how these contribute to defining various Indian film movements and industries.
