In this series of fall films, we present a mix of cinematic genres, including romantic comedy, poignant stories of childhood friendships, and transformative true-life experiences that address the topic of migrant journeys from different corners of the world. These films examine who these people are, why they leave their homes, and the many extraordinary and touching challenges they face. Come explore with us the joys, hurdles, and eventual triumphs that are depicted in these five extraordinary and powerful films.




Passages: Films About Finding Our Life Rhythms
November 15 – December 13, 2016
Classes meet each Tuesday at 1:30 or 7pm, (Includes an additional class Thursday, December 1)
Diane Thelen, Film Studies Instructor


Tuesdays 1:30 p.m.

Tuesdays 7:00 p.m.

"Come join us as we explore how the passage from childhood into adulthood can be viewed in terms of life rhythms. Sometimes we are influenced by the adults around us, and we imitate their life rhythms. Then, later, other people in our world can influence our behavior and, as a result, our rhythms may be altered. We all, eventually, must find a rhythm that works for us, as throughout the course of our lives, we adapt to our surroundings to find the right balance. The various phases of our lives, including childhood and young adulthood, are passages for us. Whether you are a 14-year-old sailor from Holland or an American "punk rocker," it's all about the journey.



Trends in International Cinema
January 10 – February 7, 2017
Warren Obluck, Film Studies Coordinator


Tuesdays 1:30 p.m.

Tuesdays 7:00 p.m.

These brilliant new films illuminate the power of family bonds across time, place, and culture. Each is from a different continent, and each tells us about very different kinds of people confronting problems with which we can all identify. The stories come from Brazil, China, Iceland, Jordan, and the U.S., and range from romantic comedy to coming-of-age tales. They are tinged with the kind of humor, warmth and insight that define great movies of all kinds.



Browsing The Best: Memorable Recent Films You Really Want to See
February 14 – March 14, 2017
Warren Obluck, Film Studies Coordinator


Tuesdays 1:30 p.m.

Tuesdays 7:00 p.m.

Every once in a while we run into a movie that we like so much, that is just so good we can't wait to tell somebody about it. That's the category the films in this course fall into. Outstanding directors put their stamps on a couple of them, but others are obviously works of love that relatively unknown casts and crews have sunk their hearts into. They're a reminder of how much fun and just how mysterious and engaging filmmaking can be.



French Connections: Fiction and the French Screen
March 21 – April 18, 2017
Warren Obluck, Film Studies Coordinator


Tuesdays 1:30 p.m.

Tuesdays 7:00 p.m.

From the earliest days of cinema, French filmmakers could seldom be accused of pandering to their audiences. Their comedies might tend toward farce, but it was farce of a high order. And when it came to ideas, they were more than willing to plunge in where producers hated to tread. The films in this course, old and new, show us that things have not changed – that when we open ourselves to what these extraordinary filmmakers have to offer, we're in for a treat.
