German 112. 1989: Cinema of the Berlin Wall, Ideologies and Aftermath (4 units) IN ENGLISH

Course Description: In this iteration of German 112 we will consider cinematic narratives that focus on the fall of the Berlin Wall, as well as films that investigate some of the cultural transformations that occurred directly after the Iron Curtain fell. Since the class’s primary interest will center on cinema that engages with the relatively recent past, students will adapt their interpretative skills to the viewing and analysis of films listed on the syllabus.
