Women have been successful in the film industry as writers, editors, and even as producers. But the female director is a special breed. She has to be a little braver, a little bolder, a little more persistent, in order for her voice to be heard. In this course we will visit some of the unique works from women who have written and directed films, from the very early works of pacesetter, Ida Lupino, to modern-day marvels like the ever-innovative and engaging Sally Potter. Beware! A woman behind the camera, whether she is a screenwriter, or a director, or both, is a wondrous thing. Led by Film Studies Coordinator Diane Thelen

Nearly 70 years have passed since the events of World War II, and even more time has elapsed since “The Great War.” Yet today, perhaps more than ever before, the subject matter still fascinates people all over the world, and we remain engaged in this topic. New books and new films are emerging, just when we think there is nothing more to be said. We continue to hear of previously untold events, large and small. We can sense an increasing urgency that these narratives not be left unspoken. In this course, we’ll take a look at some of the newer films about people’s wartime experiences, as well as some earlier overlooked storytelling on this ever-important theme. Led by Film Studies Coordinator Diane Thelen
