German Cinema to 1945 offers an overview of the development of film in Germany from its origins in the German Empire of the late nineteenth century through the end of the National Socialist period. While this course centers on close readings of works that belong to the canon of German film, it also includes examples of popular, experimental and documentary filmmaking. The course hopes to achieve three interrelated aims:
This course assumes no prior knowledge of German, German films, or film theory in general. It is taught in English and all sound-films have English subtitles.
Please note: Each week after the regular session the film for the coming week will be screened. Attending these viewing sessions from approx. 7.15 to 9.00 p.m. is mandatory.
