FALL 2022 CORE-UA 9750, Expressive Cultures: Film
Prof. Bangert (NYU Berlin) [Syllabus]
Female voices in German Cinema. An introduction to German cinema from the vantage point of female directors, drawing connections to films by women from different parts of the world and considering intersections with queer and (post-)migrant cinemas. Starting with the 1960s and up to the present day, we explore the different conditions under which female directors have worked, the challenges they have faced, and how these have impacted their artistic practice. We also examine the unique viewpoints of the selected films, many of which not only present critical accounts of larger social and political issues, but do so by creating innovative kinds of film language.
