Fascism on Film
This course explores the work of filmmakers who have used the mediums of feature and documentary film to interpret the rise and fall of the fascist experience in Europe in the years between the two World Wars. Lectures, tutorials, film screenings, and critical historical film reviews will measure the extent to which these filmmakers created cinematic historical documents designed to meet the needs of a devastated and defeated continental society embarking on a path of rebirth and renewal. The course will focus primarily on Fascist Italy and National Socialist Germany. (lec 2, tut 1) cr 3. Students may not retain credit for both HIST 3917 and HIST 2847.
