This course focuses on using film to discuss what it means to be Francophone. We will first learn how to look at film by analyzing film techniques and discuss what a typical American film means. Then we will use that to explore a film of a different Francophone country: France, Canada, Martinique, Algeria, & Indochina (Historical piece). Each country includes a series of articles, youtube videos, & background research before watching the film. At the end of the course, you will be responsible for a final project that allows you to go and watch a film on your own, applying everything we have learned to discuss “Francophonia” in that chosen film. The instructor has an approved list available - other options will be considered.
