This course gives students an opportunity to look at a culture other than their own through its representation in films, and helps them discover unknown aspects of their own culture through the examination of a foreign one. While watching a selection of French movies (in French with English subtitles), we will explore aspects of recent French history and their influence contemporary French culture; reflect on the interaction of various cultural (social) systems in France and other French-speaking communities; work on analytical skills; learn how to read film, literature, essays and relate them to a historical/social/cultural background. The films chosen illustrate key periods of French society from the pre-Revolutionary period to the beginning of the 21st century.
