SESSIONS

1. Ten keys to see Asian cinema
Through a tour around Asian cinematographies that we will develop at the different sessions, we will give 10 keys that will introduce us into this cinema.
Given by Enrique Garcelán.
Monday 14th of January 2019 from 7.00pm to 9.00pm 

2. Japanese Cinema: from clasicism of Kurosawa to modern live-actions.
From the 50's, when Japanese cinematography became present in the West through Akira Kurosawa's or Yasujiro Ozu's films, this cinematography has diversified with time, in genres and film makers: from the horror of The Ring, to the poetic justice of Takeshi Kitano, from the classics, to new manga proposals.
Given by Enrique Garcelán.
Monday 21st of January 2019 from 7.00pm to 9.00pm 

3. Anime: discovering a new animated universe
From the emergence of Pixar, the world of animation has opened itself beyond typical American productions. This fact has allowed the public to get to know and open themselves to other ways of seeing animation, introducing themselves into a concept such as 'anime': animation carried out in Japan, or animation films from other Asian countries.
Given by Eduard Terrades Vicens.
Monday 28th of January 2019 from 7.00pm to 9.00pm

4 and 5. Ying and Yang of Korean cinema: Korea comes into play
Korean cinema has been invisible throughout history: for different occupations in its territory, the Civil War that separated the Korean peninsula in the North and South, and the years of dictatorship until the arrival of democracy. What has happened with Korean cinema from 1999?
Given by Gloria Fernández and Víctor Muñoz.
Monday 4th and 11th of February 2019, from 7.00pm to 9.00pm 

6 and 7. The come back of the Asian Giant: cinema in China wakes up
The opening of the 20 cinemas per day in China is a phenomenon that gives us a dimension of what the industry of Chinese cinema currently involves. We will go through all the generations where cinematography in China is divided, as well as analysing Hong Kong's industry. The new times of global expansion bring us works where it isn't strange to see two cinematographies bringing their strenghts together in international exploitation superproductions.
Given by Enrique Garcelán and Victor Muñoz.
Monday 18th and 25th of February 2019 from 7.00pm to 9.00pm 

8 and 9. Beyond Bollywood: descovering the industries of Indian cinema.
India, with its 1.200 million inhabitants and its 22 official languages, has a multilinguistic cultural scheme that contributes to the presence of different cinematographies, all of them joined my light, colour and music. From Bollywood to Kollywood, Indian cinema swallows any other international cinematographic expression in the country.
Given by Enrique Garcelán and Gloria Fernández.
Monday 4th and 11th of March 2019 from 7.00pm to 9.00pm

10. A look at Southeast Asian cinema: the Philippines, Thailand...
As well as the great Asian model, each Southeast Asian countries present a different idiosyncrasy in their way of understanding cinema. From group problems to the incommunication of youth, going past historical debts (settled through the celluloid). What do these cinematographies contribute to Asian cinema?
Given by Gloria Fernández.
Monday 18th of March 2019 from 7.00pm to 9.00pm
