This paper analyzes Bong Joon-ho’s Snowpiercer and how it relates to a new paradigm of trans-national blockbusters. I analyze the film using a cultural materialist lens with respect to the filmmaker’s previous films and their outward (international) trajectory. This methodology highlights a larger trend that we are now seeing with large-scale ‘global’ blockbusters.

This paper discusses the emergence of a women’s diasporic cinema that challenges the representation of Indian women as guardians of Indian values. Through the examination of three films directed by women filmmakers (Mira Nair, Deepa Mehta and Nisha Pahuja), this analysis proposes to delve into the reconfiguration of Indian identity in a context of migration from women’s points of views. Women filmmakers offer a decentering approach of the diasporic displacement in which the relation to Indian values are necessarily modified. Thus, diasporic cinema will be defined as an agent of cultural demythologisation.
