National Cinemas: Eastern Europe
FILM 325
Spring 2016 not offered

This is a course for film majors that covers history and aesthetics of films from former Eastern Bloc countries. It complements our curriculum by covering important filmmakers and national cinemas that we do not otherwise focus on. We touch on political modernism in our introductory courses, but our students have not had the chance to study films from Hungary, Czechoslovakia, Macedonia, Serbia, East Germany, Romania, and Bulgaria in much detail. Filmmakers taught include Andrej Wadja, Krysztof Kieslowski, Jiri Menzel, and Miklos Jancso, all major figures in global cinema history. The class poses the question, What is national in national cinema? and investigates the role of filmmakers as social critics and engaged observers.
