Course description

Moving slightly beyond the well-trodden historical path of French New Wave and even the Cinema du look of the 1980s, you'll explore the themes, influences, techniques and voices behind some captivating French cinema from relatively more recent years – have things changed? Are there still some factors parallel to earlier works? Films explored: The Intouchables / Untouchable (2011), Leon: The Professional (1994), 120 BPM / Beats per Minute (2017), La Haine (1995), White Material (2010).
