In this chapter we look closely at seven films and one television series that display a variety of worldwide influences in their conception and/or move- ment from script to production. Our goal? Well, of course, I hope to in- spire you to take on a global project yourself if you have not already done so. Furthermore, I urge you to see these films/shows if you have not seen them and to go over the material mentioned, from Homer to Bosnia. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon is a triumphant example of a script written in two languages (English and Chinese) by an

A striking example is that of Japanoise, which developed within a cultural feedback loop between Japan and the United States (primarily) thanks to the international movement of artists and to networks of exchange such as Inter- net newsgroups and, latterly, fi le-sharing and video websites.1 Globalization is not always benefi

145 T W E LV E Worldwide Distribution and Abundance of Killer Whales KAR I N A. FOR N EY AN D PAU L R. WADE Killer whales have long been recognized as formidable pred- ators in virtually all of the world’s oceans (Leatherwood and Dahlheim 1978; Heyning and Dahlheim 1988). They are known to be common in many coastal areas, particularly at high latitudes, but they also occur in offshore and tropical waters (Leatherwood and Dahlheim 1978). Seasonal move- ment patterns, often associated with increased availability of prey species (Dahlheim 1981), have been

a sort of reli- gious assurance, and even promoted with missionary zeal, while being tested by new notions of the legitimacy of diverse cultures to promote their own values—values which may not accord with Euro-American values promoted as universal. Before we turn back to a fi nal examina- tion of the would-be universalism that serves as a meta-religion for the dominant, worldwide, neocolonial regime of the capitalist West, we must fi rst consider the encounter with countries like India and China, which sought to forge, not only political independence from

I didn’t know it at the time, but my birth as a worldwide screenwriter re- ally dates back to my youth, when I saw Jean-Luc Godard’s Breathless for the first time. As a young American high school student, I had never seen a Hollywood film where the main character—Jean-Paul Belmondo in this case—simply turned to us (the camera!) and talked as if he knew we were there and could communicate with him. Not only that, I was impressed that he clearly was imitating Humphrey Bogart (there was even a shot of Belmondo standing by a Bogart poster in Paris) and thus playing

30 c h a p t e r 2 The Hollywood Influence on Worldwide Screenwriting and International/Independent Influences on Hollywood Two very different worlds exist in screenwriting. French writer/director Robert Bresson suggests a European mind-set when he says, “Be the first to see what you see as you see it” (25), and Max Adams, a young survivor of the Hollywood system, expresses the Hollywood mentality when he reflects, “Agents don’t buy scripts. Studios do” (9). Bresson focuses on how to write and make the film you want to make. Adams offers “practical” info on how
