HIST129 PO - Hollywood, War, & Empire: The Historical Film

When Offered: Last offered spring 2018.
Instructor(s): V. Silverman
Credit: 1

Film evolved at the same time as modern global empires and devastating wars. This course introduces students to the evolution of motion pictures which make claims to truth about these cataclysmic events, with an emphasis on US films and filmmakers. Beginning with silent films showing historic tableaus through the propaganda films of World War II to anti-war films of the 50s and 60s and the controversial political documentaries of today, students will consider both the history of film and the history presented by film. As a final project, students research and propose their own historical film dealing with the US role in the world. Previously offered as HIST122  PO.
