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.

In this course, we will be exploring the culture of Russian children. We will read poetry and short fiction for children, we will watch cartoons and films, and we will learn to play some children’s games. This course is also intended to provide the students with a comprehensive review of major grammatical topics and vocabulary covered in second-year Russian.
