In this course, students will be introduced to major French-speaking films and directors from Quebec from the Révolution Tranquille of the 60's to today. Cinema in Quebec is remarkable for its creativity, vibrancy, and diversity. We will look at films and documentaries addressing issues of cultural affirmation, language, separatism, American and French influence, ethnic diversity, and current political, social and economic conditions in Quebec. Films will be complemented by music clips and newspaper articles. Conducted in French. Prerequisite: Minimum 2 years of French.
