FILM 42.20 The Berlin School

This course examines the contemporary German film movement known as the "Berlin School," a group of approximately a dozen filmmakers with more than 40 features to their credit. Dissecting the everyday reality of post-wall Germany, this counter-cinema draws on Italian Neo-Realism, the New German Cinema, and contemporary international independent film to advocate radical notions of realism and narrative conventions, challenging viewers to rethink political filmmaking in a national and transnational environment. Screenings will include films by key filmmakers associated with the Berlin School as well as by Luchino Visconti, Wim Wenders, Kelly Reichardt, Apichatpong Weerasethakul, and others.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
