Catalog Description : This course will examine topics in Russian film. Topics may include specific generes (e.g. the sad comedy), the work of a director or tradition, films important for a specific historical moment (e.g. the Thaw or World War Two), or films devoted to a specific theme. Students will expand their Russian vocabulary, improve fluency, increase speaking confidence and gain cultural knowledge by viewing Russian films and analyzing the psychology of the characters. Throughout this course, students will be introduced to the practice of reading the filmic text using three structuring lenses: 1) history, 2) formal and generic elements, and 3) film criticism. May be repeated when topic is different.

Topic for Spring 2013: Kitchen Talks: Tales, Fairytales, Rumors, and the Movies
The course primarily focuses on developing student’s listening and speaking skills in Russian. During the term, students will watch and discuss a variety of Russian/Soviet films connected to the topic of "gossip" and "kitchen talk". Through the discussion of the films themselves and the questions the films raise, students will increase their vocabulary and gain more confidence speaking Russian. By exposing students to a variety of Russian accents and modes of speech, the course will strengthen students’ listening and comprehension skills, while also familiarizing them with Russian culture.
