Catalog Description : This course selects from 90 years of filmmaking in Germany. Films range from expressionism to Nazi propaganda and from escapist comedies to avant garde art. Learning to “read” German films critically also means finding out how to understand movies from Hollywood and beyond. Possible topics include “From Caligari to Hitler,” “German Literature as Film,” and “What Makes Lola Run.” Taught in English. German majors and minors may participate in a two-unit tutorial in which discussions and some course readings will be in German.

Topic for Spring 2019: Fatih Akin, a Retrospective
Now that he has produced a dozen films, including In the Fade which won the Golden Globe for best foreign film in 2018, it is time to take a retrospective look at Fatih Akin’s impressive body of work. Why do so many consider him to be Germany’s most important living filmmaker? What themes does he address? Do his films have a recognizable style? What can we learn from viewing his wide ranging collection of films?
