    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    World Cinema 1 and 2 both teach about the history of cinema; 1 starting from the beginning to the 1930's and 2 beginning with 1940's up to today.

    Course highlights:

    One of the highlights of the course is learning that the United States was not the leading force in cinema as it is today, but in the beginnings it mostly consisted of Italy, Germany and France; and only Hollywood rose to the top because WWI was not fought within the United States.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention. some of the films we studied in class are boring, but they are very informative; do not fall asleep.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because it expands your mind. We watched at least one film each week from another country. It opened my perspective of the world because I was able to see differences in other cultures. We watched things I would have never even heard of if not for the class.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about two very important movements in film: Italian neorealism and the French New Wave. These two movements, particularly the former, played a huge role in influencing all films that came afterwards.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed you need to attend class every single day. We only had class once a week, and each class we would watch a different film, so missing just one day can make it really difficult to keep up.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course introduces you to important landmark films and film movement in foreign cinemas around the world. It's important to broaden the students horizons in both both film making and global culture.

    Course highlights:

    Watching movies I wouldn't have come across such as Federico Fellini's 8 1/2 or Jean Luc Godard's Pierrot Le Fou

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Watch the assigned movies as soon as you get them, you do not want to be forced to watch a 2 hour and 30 minute movie 2 hours and 30 minutes before class.
