Jean-Louis Trintignant: A Life in Cinema
October 1 - 29, 2013

Tuesdays 1:30 p.m.

Tuesdays 7:00 p.m.

This course will showcase the exceptional work of one of France’s greatest actors. While his contemporary Jean-Paul Belmondo possessed rugged charm, and the debonair Marcello Mastrioanni personified restless drifting, it was the extraordinary Jean-Louis Trintignant alone who had a secret weapon up his sleeve: he could channel and convey a vast world of European emotions in his every glance. Students will sample some of international cinema’s greatest films in this five-week course.



When Class Mattered: British Films at Mid-Century
November 5 - December 3, 2013

Tuesdays 1:30 p.m.

Tuesdays 7:00 p.m.

It may be hard to remember, but there was a time when a doctorate in linguistics was not required to understand every word in a British film. The films of that earlier era were singular for their engaging wit, mischief, and playfulness. Generally irresistible, they were above all distinguished by a particular sensibility and sense of style that make these examples timeless.



Inside/Outside: Films from and About Cuba

Cuba has always been synonymous with the arts – high and low, classical and popular. It has produced artists, writers and performers of great renown in every cultural field. A traditional location for movie makers from many countries, it also had a small but viable film industry before the revolution and continues that tradition today. In this course students will view films (including some seldom seen) made both in Cuba and by others living outside the country who bring their own perspective on the island to their work.

Beyond Bollywood: Classic and Contemporary Films from India
March 18 - April 15, 2014

Tuesdays 1:30 p.m.

Tuesdays 7:00 p.m.


When we think of Bollywood, we tend to think of 4-hour movies, lavishly staged songs and dances, and always happy endings. But the intended audience for those films is domestic or the diaspora, and there’s more to India’s thriving film industry than that – and there has been for decades. In this course students will look back to some of the quintessential films that announced India’s arrival on the world stage of cinema, as well as more recent examples to broaden the scope beyond the genre stereotype. That said, there will be a little singing and dancing.
