Course Description
Seeing is believing, and foreign films give us the experience of traveling beyond borders without a plane ticket or visa The journey begins with the screening of eight award-winning foreign films that examine global hotspots in conflict.
These award-winning, powerful films serve as a catalyst for our post-screening discussions about foreign film, as well as present-day issues in the film’s geopolitical region and how the films reflect different cultures, themes and global issues.
We will see foreign films in our classroom at NYU’s 42nd Street campus and discuss the film after screening the film. The films are of different literary styles.
