  • Overview

    Taking a selection of films from Irish, Hollywood, Spanish and Asian filmmakers, we will consider how useful it is to interpret these films as responding to representational traditions of the Gothic. We will discuss the aesthetics of the Global Gothic, key filmmakers, and production contexts. Works from the mid- and late-twentieth century will be studied alongside more recent productions in order to provide historical points of comparison.
