Cinema and Empire

Dr. Lee Grieveson, University College London | Umapagan Ampikaipakan, Literary Reviewer

26-Jan-16 14:00

Cinema and Empire

It’s movie awards season in the United States and what that means is that a group of filmmakers, actors, and writers pick their favourite movies of the last year, tell us what’s good, and tell us that we really really need to watch them. It’s a whole different kind of psychological and economic soft power. Today, on Bookmark, Umapagan Ampikaipakan speaks to Dr. Lee Grieveson about censorship, methods of movie consumption, the Golden Globes and the Oscars and the use of cinema as a propaganda tool.
