Refugees from Nazi Germany had a tremendous influence on Hollywood in the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s. This seminar explores the productions of directors such as Lubitsch, Wilder, Ulmer, and Preminger as works of German exile culture, examining their connections with Weimar cinema and their role in anti-fascist aesthetics. Our film analysis will be enriched with theoretical perspectives from Adorno, Eisler, Kracauer and other German exiles.
