German 273. Film and German Culture

This course offers an overview of the history of German cinema from 1919 until the present. Students will be introduced to the political, economic, and social conditions of Germany during the Weimar Republic, the Third Reich, the post-war and post-wall era. As we study the larger socio-historical and cultural context of the films, we will learn how German identity has changed over the last century.
