AH 185 - Middle Eastern Cinema

Lower Division

This is a semester length study of the national cinemas of Iran, Turkey, and Egypt. The course will explore the rich and long cinematic traditions of each of these national cinemas that have profoundly influenced regional and global film cultures. We will look at the recent masters of each cinema whose work has been celebrated in film festivals and art theaters across the world. The desired learning outcome for this course is to become familiar with aspects of each of these cultures through their cinemas and become somewhat acquainted with the cinematic terminology that is required to understand an introductory level of film analysis. This course does not require prior knowledge of these cultures or film history. Students will get a deeper understanding of this national cinema by making their own versions of the films they see as creative practice.
