World Cinema: Timeless Classics from Europe and Beyond

In this class we’ll see the classics of world cinema. The primary focus will be on European films but we may include Asia, South America, and beyond. Following the films we’ll have discussions about how and where these films were made. The production of these classics were surrounded by a whirlwind of culture and politics. We’ll look at these conditions and examine the art, the business, the history, and the evolution of cinema. A collection of important films have been selected but the students will help make the final choices. All films will be “talkies”. We will not include any silent films in this class. All films will be subtitled in English. Arrangements for viewing the films are through a private Internet streaming service. There are no additional costs for the these streaming services.
