Cinema of Migration

In conjunction with the course, Imaginative Arts of Migration, being taught by Leslie Adelson (German Studies) and Sabine Haenni (PMA/Amer Studies), we present four films that lend themselves to the exploration of what role cinema should play in debates about transnational migration, one of the principal factors re-shaping community and communication today. The course focuses on literature and film from the late 20th and early 21st centuries, with primary examples drawn from Germany, France and the United States-in relation to Turkey, Hungary, Tunisia, Iran, Nigeria, China, Mexico, and Japan-and investigates how creative arts rework the fabric of social life affected by migration. Cosponsored with University Courses.
