    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The uniqueness and content of this course is an awesome course at UCLA. Professor Brozgal is wonderfully engaging with her students, and getting to watch old and new French films is much fun as well.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course are definitely the variety of movies that you get to watch. You start the quarter with a contemporary film, then go all the way back to the early days of French cinema and work your way forwards. Along the way, you get to learn about the history France, its empire, its past colonies, and how these have shaped its people today.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    As always, do the readings beforehand, they make retaining stuff from the lectures that much easier. As well, don't miss the films, obviously. You watch one a week, and there shouldn't be any complaining for getting graded to watch a movie.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class was a thorough look into the history of racism in Europe, specifically in France; looking at colonialism, orientalism, and then French policy from it's revolution to the present.

    Course highlights:

    Seeing films that are not only about racism, but may include another layer of racism, seen sub-consciously through casting, angles, etc. was endlessly interesting. When trying to find ways to end racism, it's important to understand it's roots so it can be addressed in it's entirety. This class taught a lot about how there's a post-colonial racism that lingers and is often not addressed.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do all the readings because they'll enhance you're experience in the class!
