French Cinema: National Traditions, Global Horizons

Cinema Studies 250

Usual Description

This historical survey will expose students to the directors, movements, and periods that have represented French filmmaking since its beginning (ie. Lumiere, Melies, Surrealism, 1930s Poetic Realism, Occupation, New Wave, contemporary film), as well as French-language films produced in Africa and Asia. A study of the history of industrialization, cultural policy, state regulation, and colonialism will help reveal the conceptualization of French cinema as a “national cinema,” despite its international artistic heritage and audiences, and as a particular kind of interface representing Frenchness within and beyond France.  Taught in English.
