GERM 3333 - German Film History

3 (3-0)

This course provides an overview of German history and culture through the filmic lens from the silent Weimar Cinema until today.  It will attend to both art house and popular film, and examine various eras, genres, and topics, such as Expressionism, Nazi propaganda, the rubble film, the New German Cinema, the East German Socialist film, and the contemporary Berlin School film.  The films will be analyzed both in terms of their cinematic aesthetics as well as their social and historical contexts of their production.  This course is a combination of lectures, film viewings in German with English subtitles, readings in English language, class discussions, and writing assignments.
