Scandinavian 60: Introduction to Nordic Cinema

Instructor: Patrick Wen

Scandinavian 60 provides undergraduates with a broad introductory overview of the cinematic traditions of the Nordic countries. Surveying a wide range of films, we will familiarize ourselves with several significant threads running throughout the history of Nordic film, while simultaneously building the necessary tools with which to write effectively about film narrative. We will also provide an historical and theoretical framework for our understanding of Nordic cinema by reading several relevant texts touching on issues such as globalization, immigration, Dogme 95 and feminist film theory.
