CLAS 2275 Greece Viewed Through Her Films (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

This course views Greece through the medium of films made chiefly by internationally-renowned Greek filmmakers. The films are studied as reflections of the Greek landscape and climate, history and politics, literature and culture. The course offers multiple angles on Greece (Never on Sunday, Zorba the Greek) and comparison with films of other countries—the reel leads from mythical antiquity (Iphigeneia) to the vibrant contemporary nation, in its international context on the Southeastern rim of Europe (Ulysses' Gaze, Touch of Spice). All the major films viewed are in English or have English subtitles.
