GERM 3610 - Weimar Cinema and Beyond

3 Credit(s)

From the early experimental films of the Weimar era to the socially critical films of the postwar New German Cinema, and the “cosmopolitan screen” of Turkish-German cinema at the turn of the 21st century, German cinema has been, quite literally, a “projection screen” for examining social and cultural problems in Germany. Through the viewing and discussion of a number of German films, this course surveys the major trends in German cinema history and develops students’ skills in film analysis. Students will gain an overview of the major genres produced and popularized since the beginning of film history. Students will become versed in sequence analysis and learn to interpret Cinema’s distinct language. Films are in German (with subtitles), readings are in German and English, and discussions are in German.

Prerequisite: GERM 2020 or the equivalent, or permission of the Department Chair.
