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 Fall 2013: Domestic Warfare
In this course we will watch several Russian films that focus on different kinds of battles both at home and on the war front. The films include late Soviet classics, such as A Cruel Romance and Adam’s Rib, as well as some of the most famous post-Soviet films, The Prisoner of the Mountains, The Thief, East-West and others. The course’s primary goal is to strengthen students’ listening and speaking skills in Russian. This course will help students expand their Russian vocabulary and improve their fluency. The students will also gain cultural knowledge by viewing, analyzing, and discussing the films and the historical context in which those films were produced.
