AFVS 73 - Exploring Culture Through Film

Description
This course will provide an introduction to the history and theory of documentary and ethnographic film with a focus on the politics of representation and the challenges made to the canonical mainstream. We will discuss the changing paradigms of "ethnographic" film, situating these debates within their historical film contexts and explore how new digital media technologies effect the politics of representation. A variety of cinematic styles from essay films and new media to observational cinema will be screened and discussed.  Course site: https://locator.tlt.harvard.edu/course/colgsas-117631/2019/fall/21689
