French and Francophone Cinema
Knowledge-Values Courses: Creative Arts and Culture
French & Francophone Cinema introduces participants to the major past and contemporary film productions of the French-speaking world, with a specific emphasis on France, Belgium, Quebec, and Senegal. Weekly links to interviews with filmmakers or actors, articles and reviews, help students identify tropes in genres, themes, styles, and methods of distribution and financing. Each week students watch emblematic film(s) for each genre/era as a means to interpret signs and symbols.
