Description: This class is a survey of world cinema from 1893 to the present. We will examine movies as a business, a social phenomenon, a series of technological innovations, and an art form, and we will work toward a functional explanation of how each of these aspects of the movies has changed over time. Although many people associate movies with the American film industry, filmmakers in every historical period and all over the world have worked to both distinguish their work from that of Hollywood and to draw upon some approaches innovated by the Americans. The films screened in class may include silent epic blockbusters from Italy, riveting crime thrillers from Germany, explosive Hong Kong action movies, French New Wave dramas, anarchic British satires, and many other examples of exciting and innovative filmmaking from all over the world.
