Topic for Winter 2019: Queering Sci Fi Film
The genre of sci fi film is one of the most malleable and resilient of all film genres. In this course, we'll examine the ways in which traditionally marginalized filmmakers employ the sci fi genre to think about difference, marginalization, and futurity. We will explore contemporary films by marginalized directors such as A Wrinkle in Time and The Shape of Water, in addition to classic films such as Metropolis and Blade Runner. Use/think about the boundaries of genre.
