Comments: 
General Education course taught entirely in English, and all films have English subtitles. This semester's focus is on contemporary French and Francophone films. Using the background you acquire from the assigned readings, papers, lectures, screenings, and meetings of your discussion section, you will learn how to do a critical film analysis. We will explore recent debates about French identity in light of the challenges posed by immigration (especially non-European immigration), feminism, economic and cultural globalization, and France's version of ?multiculturalism," casting a wide net over cinema to examine the privileged relationship between a nation, an art, and a social practice.
