Cross-Cultural Cinema, detailed description below image  
Cross-Cultural Cinema. FIL 4848, 12435, TR 10:50-12:05. Dr. Nicholas de Villiers. Note: This course fulfills a cultural diversity (CD) requirement. Based on a set of films that focus on the situation of the cross-cultural encounter-including tourism, immigration, and transnational romance-paired with critical readings in world cinema studies, this course will provide students with the analytical tools to address three central questions: what does it mean to be "abroad"? What are the pleasures, privileges and perils of being "lost in translation"? and how does the cinema both reflect and participate in globalization? Our exploration of these questions will also entail that students be self-critical about how their encounter with world cinema is a cross-cultural experience. The principle analytical tools will be drawn from the diverse interdisciplinary fields of cinema and media studies, cultural studies, postcolonial studies, and cultural anthropology. Students will write three short essays over the course of the semester.

American Film in Context 1970s, detailed description below image  
American Film In Context. 1970s. In the 1960s Filmmakers broke from the seamless, glossy, morally-certain films in Hollywood had perfected, ushering in the great artistic period of American film called the Hollywood Renaissance, which we will study in depth, along with Blockbusters, Independent Cinema, and Genre films (slasher, vigilante, blaxploitation). With the Vietnam War and Watergate, Americans in the 1970's could no longer take for granted that their government was honest or that their military action was morally just. To approach this culturally-saturated film in context, we will read and discuss non-fiction from 1967-1980 in order to understand the social, historical, and aesthetic force of the film. Students should have taken Introduction to Film for American Film to ensure basic film interpretation skills before taking this class.

Gender, Sexuality, & Cinema, detailed description below image  
Gender, Sexuality, and Cinema. Dr. Nicholas de Villiers. LIT 5934/82423. FIL 3930/82413. TR 3:05-5:45pm. Feminist film theorist Laura Mulvey argued that there was a sexual division of labor in Classical Hollywood cinema with "Woman as Image, Man as Bearer of the Look." Women were objectified by the "male gaze" in cinema, which catered to the visual pleasure of male audience members. The documentary of the "Celluloid Closet" makes and equally broad claim that "Hollywood taught straight people what to think of gay people and gay people with to think of themselves." Feminist critics since Mulvey have gone on to consider the problem of female spectatorship and questioned the social construction of gender (masculinity as well as femininity). and gay and lesbian film historians have since asked that possibilities there are for queer identification and desire in cinema. This course provides and opportunity for discussion of these and related issues regarding "the politics of representation" in an atmosphere of free and open inquiry. The principle analytical tools will be drawn from the diverse interdisciplinary fields of cinema and media studies, cultural studies, gender studies, and gay and lesbian studies. Students will be required to write three short essays over the course of the semester.

Documentary workshop, detailed description below image    
Documentary Workshop. Summer A. LIT 4931/5934 Documentary Workshop. T/R 12:40-4:10. This intensive summer workshop on documentary dilm productions is designed to give students a crash course on amateur documentary production focusing especially on the interview. By the end of the course students will have learned how to interview, shoot video, record audio, and edit a short documentary using Final Cut software. Our aim is not to reproduce the interviews we see on television but to understand documentary filming as a creative process where we learn not only the basic skills of filming, but also how to find our own voice through film. The course will be offered in longer version in the fall semester. Students can productively take up one or both of the workshops. The summer session will likely focus on interviewing someone the student already knows. The course will move at a rapid pace, film knowledge experience or dedication is a must.
