Ideas Roadshow’s film resources are primarily focused on Prof. Michael Berry’s reflections on China’s film industry: its past, present, and ongoing relationship with Hollywood. Michael Berry is Professor of Contemporary Chinese Cultural Studies at the University of California, Los Angeles. His areas of research include modern and contemporary Chinese literature, Chinese cinema, popular culture in modern China, and literary translation. Specific themes suggested for developing an extended essay centred around film studies may also be used as a conceptual starting point for the independent study.
Ideas Roadshow’s IBDP Portal also includes a wide range of resources to explicitly integrate TOK into your Film course, including our TOK Connections Guide for Film.
