The class will meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1 pm to 2:40 pm online in the first summer session (May 30 - July 5).
The course studies films from Spain, Australia, South Korea, Algeria, Soviet Russia, Lebanon, United States, Iran, and more! Modes of cinemas explored in the course include classical Hollywood cinema, international art cinemas, avant-garde, experimental and animation in feature length and short forms.
