My Winnipeg is concerned with the specificity of place. How does that place shape subjectivity? What is the flip side of film and the nation? We will think about film and the transnational. There is a difference between international and transnational. Transnational is a far more favored term. Transnational employs the prefix “trans” which means across or beyond. It involves a sense of momentum, dynamism. It reflects the flows and exchanges in the political, economical, cultural domains that are so important today. These flows and exchanges are the product of globalization and computerization. The nation state as the most important imagined community to which one can belong is revoked today. Political entities like NATO or the EU, international free trade zones or multinational corporations, social entities have revoked the nation state. Film culture is a perfect barometer of transnational trends. Films have moved with ease around the world. The film festival has created a mobile for international film culture. Also with the Internet, films can be streamed around the world. As a result of these trends, we are currently experiencing a shift from world cinema to global cinema. Dudle
