Description: This course will explore the relationship between film and revolution in West German cinema from 1965 to the present. We will consider cinema's potential as a revolutionary medium, while also focusing on how revolution is thematized and constructed in both fiction and documentary films. The course will engage with issues such as coming to terms with the fascist past, recreating the cinema as a revolutionary artistic form, feminism as a revolutionary perspective, the domestic sphere as a revolutionary space, and the co-optation of the cinema's revolutionary potential through mass consumption.

Description: In this course we will explore representations of women in post-World War II German cinema. Moving chronologically from the building of two German states to the post-unification period, we will consider the constantly shifting meaning of 'woman' in popular and avant-garde films, narrative and documentary films, films by both male and female directors. We will consider equally films from East and West Germany. How does 'woman' function as a narrative device in these films? Do women behind the camera change 'woman's' meaning within the film? Can 'woman' consistently be reduced to one narrative trope (mother, comrade or whore), or does she resist? All readings and discussions are in English; all films are subtitled.
