FILM 326 - Cinema and the Critique of Capitalism

4 credits
Introduces a range of international films from the 20th and 21st centuries that highlight the intersections between cinema and capitalism. Students have the opportunity to analyze prominent cinematic works—from Modern Times to Parasite— in conjunction with the writings of Marx, Marxists (from Angela Davis to David Harvey), and scholars of “racial capitalism” (from Stuart Hall to Robin D.G. Kelly). Exposes students, through lecture and discussion, to the skills needed to approach film through the lens of critical theory, and to think—through film—about global capitalism and its effects on economic, racial, and gender hierarchies. Same as ENGH 326 . Prerequisite: ENGH 150  or ENGH 120  or FILM 101  or ENGH 221  or FILM 201 . CLA-Diversity International
