Description: This course provides a detailed examination of the French filmmakers of the New Wave, from 1959 to 1967. We will examine the work of Jean-Pierre Melville, Claude Chabrol, Francois Truffaut, Jean-Luc Godard, Eric Rohmer, Agnes Varda, and Jacques Rivette. We will also explore the films' historical context and influence through some attention to their predecessors and successors. Knowledge of French helpful, but not necessary.
