HIS 220 - Movements Through Film

Credits: 3

Though the technology of motion pictures is only a little more than a century old, it has served an outsized role in the shaping of societies throughout the globe. This course will explore seminal moments throughout motion picture history with an emphasis on the cultural, economic, and political impact of different important feature-length and short films. Discussions will focus on why film matters in different contexts, how filmmakers respond to social change, and how, in turn, films affect society. This aim of this course is to inspire filmmakers to develop their sense of conviction and why they make films.
