The autonomous cinema move refers back to the movies, movie theories, film-related cultural actions that emerged which will record social realities, to suggest the liberty of inventive expression, and to symbolize the voices of marginalized social identities. My dissertation is the 1st try in English movie scholarship on Korean cinema to discover the historical past of non-commercial filmmaking carried out within the identify of cinema flow from Seventies to 2000s. the first resources of research for this examine contain motion pictures, books, and archive fabrics.
