Same as Hum 3041. The course traces the development of New German Cinema which began in the 1960s, and continues in the post-unification period. Students will be introduced to films by both East and West German directors who define this national cinema, and will learn about the cultural, political and economic context of its production and with reference to theories and critiques to help students gain an overview of German film and culture of the period. Film presentations are in German with English subtitles. Readings and lectures are in English. Final papers are either in German (for German credit) or English (for Humanities credit).
