Course Description

This film course proposes to look at France and its culture through some of its most beloved authors: Molie`re, Emile Zola, Marcel Pagnol and Victor Hugo. After a short PowerPoint presentation which highlights the broader cultural, historical, and socio- political contexts, we’ll direct the viewer to actively engage in the storytelling process by watching four films based on works from the 17th to the 20th centuries. Those films are Bicycling wit Moliere, Germinal, La Fille du Puisatier, and Hunchback of Notre Dame. Lively discussion conducted afterward in English. All films are watched in class in French with English subtitles; there is no outside homework or film viewing.
