EAS Speaker Series: Eclipsed Cinema, the Film Culture of Colonial Korea by Dr. Dong Hoon Kim

The East Asian Speakers Series presents a talk by Dr. Dong Hoon Kim, Eclipsed Cinema: the Film Culture of Colonial Korea on Thursday, October 19, 4pm at the Purple Lounge (Robarts Library, 14th floor). 

Professor Kim presents his book Eclipsed Cinema: the Film Culture of Colonial Korea that explores the seldom-studied film culture in Korea under Japanese colonial rule (1910-1945). Instead of looking at colonial film history merely with the framework of Korean national cinema, Eclipsed Cinema locates cinema in colonial Korea at the discursive junctures of colonial, regional, and Korean and Japanese national cinemas and excavates the under-investigated aspects of colonial film culture, including the representational politics of colonial cinema, film exhibition, film reception and spectatorship, and Japanese settlers’ film culture.
