Description
Can film change the world? What can the history of engaged film and media-making teach us about politics, and vice-versa? This course will study instances of political filmmaking from around the world: early 20th century avant-garde filmmaking, anti-colonialist and anti-imperialist cinemas, feminist and queer filmmaking, Indigenous cinemas, and more. Students will learn about different political movements, international histories of film theory and film form, and the ongoing legacies of cinemas of resistance. Notes: Interested students must attend first meeting of class during shopping week to speak with teaching staff about course enrollment procedure. There are mandatory weekly film screenings for this course. Course site: https://locator.tlt.harvard.edu/course/colgsas-207946/2019/fall/19233
