Section Information for Fall 2022

Many of our ideas about the past, and our images of what it looked like, come from the movies. This course explores how film might represent a serious and complex engagement with the past. We will watch movies from the US, Europe and Latin America – about slavery, revolution, the Holocaust, and dictatorship – to uncover how they represent the past in ways not possible in written form. We will explore not only what these films tell us about the past but also what they reveal about the political and historical moments in which they were produced. Why do certain historical episodes become “popular” at certain moments? What work do historical films do in the present?
