Integrating Asian Film into Film Studies and Film Production Courses Using Examples from Yasujiro Ozu (Japan) and Zhang Yimou (China). Asian Studies Module, 1997.
This curriculum module offers concrete and specific examples for instructors who wish to integrate the films of Yasujiro Ozu of Japan and Zhang Yimou from China into film studies courses. Through this module, students should learn to compare and contrast conventional screen space, color, and editing to alternative forms. By becoming more familiar with Asian examples of film making, students should be able to articulate, discuss critically, and demonstrate the differences between Hollywood and alternative Asian styles. Included in this module is a list for audiovisual support and resources, step by step instructions for time allocation, goals and student objectives and content and teaching strategies. Pre-test and post-test assessments are provided along with discussion questions and additional activities. A detailed annotated bibliography provides a rich review of books on Asian film and cultural negotiation. Two appendices include comparative information and illustrations contrasting traditional film making to Asian models. (Contains 32 references.) (AF)
