And if you´re going for Korean stuff may i recommend the obvious of
Symptahy for Lady Vengeance - and on the topic of Chan Wook Park, there
is a whole lot to be made of the role Oh-Daesu´s partner in crime in
Oldboy!

Subject: [SCREEN-L] women in Asian film

Another great film with a female protagonist is Ermo.

hanks Gary, for being the ONE person to offer suggestions.  

I've thought of a few other films during the week, like Tampopo and Eat
Drink Man Woman.  

Japan, India and China are easy, but I'll be looking for films from,
say, Vietnam, Thailand, and Indonesia.

  For Lou Ann Thompson:

  The films of Zhang Yimou are all very good representations of women in
parts 
  of Chinese
  culture. In particular, consider Raise the Red Lantern, The Road Home,
or Not 
  One Less,
  for examples.   You could do worse than to use several of his films in
your 
  first course.
  The films are very "teachable," in my experience with them.
