This course will expand the South Asia Program. Film is used as an avenue for understanding culture, politics, religion, social issues/tensions, complexity and richness of India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. As India has the largest film industry in the world, this course will also show students that there is more to Indian cinema than just Bollywood. It illustrates how one cannot appreciate Indian films without basic knowledge of literature, history and the composition. This course is taught in English.
This noncredit class meets with a regular University of Utah credit course.
