FILM UN3020 Interdisciplinary Studies. 3 points.

Fee: $75.

We will explore how films from a variety of countries--notably Germany, Poland, France, Italy and the U.S.--have attempted to grapple with the legacy of the Shoah. Through close reading of such motion pictures as THE SHOP ON MAIN STREET, THE PAWNBROKER, SEVEN BEAUTIES, PARTISANS OF VILNA, KORCZAK and GENGHIS COHN, we will discuss the possibilities and limitations of Holocaust representation onscreen.
