This course focuses on the relationship between film and aspects of mostly U.S. politics, such as class, gender, race, sexuality, war, terrorism, individualism, collectivism, the state, and capitalism. The course includes a weekly screening and discussion of primarily protest films indicating ways in which such films have attempted to intervene in shaping the public discourse and raising political consciousness. The course also explores through assigned readings the cinematic representations of the political themes and categories as they have appeared in major Hollywood feature films. Lastly, the course examines both the evolving political economy of Hollywood and the film industry’s relationship with the defense and the intelligence communities of the national security apparatus of the U.S. state.

Open to the public. No charge. A Transitions U course, under the auspices of the Alliance for Sustainable Communities-Lehigh Valley.
