CINE 250 - Nazi Cinema

GRMN 257
401 |Simon Richter |TR 10:30am-12pm

This course explores the world of Nazi cinema ranging from infamous propaganda pieces such as "The Triumph of the Will" and "The Eternal Jew" to entertainments by important directors such as Pabst and Douglas Sirk. More than sixty years later, Nazi Cinema challenges us to grapple with issues of more subtle ideological insinuation than we might think. The course also includes film responses to developments in Germany by exiled German directors (Pabst, Wilder) and concludes with "Downfall," a recent German film depicting Hitler's last days in the bunker.
