Section Information for Fall 2023

This course will explore cinematic realism’s promise to speak to and about injustice and to forge new languages of representation in order to motivate social and political transformation. We will look at realism's role in protest, revolution, community, and comemoration. We will also consider the moments when realism fails as well as times when realism isn't enough, and films need to include elements of fantasy, myth, comedy, and melodrama. Ideally, you will leave this course with a less certain but more nuanced response to the question “What is realism?”
