Film Studies for Adults: German Cinema
This October, our film studies class for adults will focus on German cinema, which has been a vital part of film history since the beginning of the medium. From the pioneering silent film Metropolis to the epic Berlin Alexanderplatz and the Academy Award-winning The Lives of Others, Germany offers a rich contribution to world cinema. We have Germany to thank for big screen icons such as Marlene Dietrich, Wim Wenders, and Werner Herzog — the impact of the German film industry is even felt in the Marvel Cinematic Universe with the inclusion of German actor Daniel Bruhl. Join us for October’s class to take a deeper look into this vibrant national cinema.

This class functions much like a book club — students watch the films at home through available streaming services, and arrive at class for additional content and robust discussion led by the instructor. Meetings will be recorded by request through Zoom for students unable to attend a class.
