Topics course. From Paris to Fort-de-France, Montreal to Dakar, we study how various filmmakers from the Francophone world present urban spaces as sites of conflict, solidarity, alienation and self-discovery. How do these portraits confirm or challenge the distinction between urban and nonurban? How does the image of the city shift for "insiders" and "outsiders"? Other topics to be discussed include immigration, colonialism and globalization. Works by Sembene Ousmane, Denys Arcand, Mweze Ngangura and Euzhan Palcy. Offered in French. Prerequisite: 230, or permission of the instructor. Weekly required screenings. 252 may be repeated for credit with another topic.
