Course Description

Many of the most innovative works of cinema have been made under the energy and direction of collective movements that intersect with social and political uprisings such as the French New Wave, Italian Neo-Realism and the post Neo-Realist aftermath, New German Cinema, Indian Parallel Cinema, Cinema Novo in Brazil, the cinema of the Cuban revolution and elsewhere in the world. The common ground is the social and political changes emergent in the 1960s and 1970s. ln a given year, this seminar course will examine a selection of films from several of these movements in order to understand the relationship between cinema, culture and society both in the context of its time and as influences on contemporary practices.
