The course is designed as an introduction to French cinema and its history during the 20th century. As a cultural institution, cinema in France benefited from government support, which helped the industry develop, thrive, and later on survive, in spite of the formidable competition coming from Hollywood. As a cultural phenomenon, French cinema mirrored, and sometimes initiated aesthetic changes in the literary and artistic world. Dada, surrealism, poetic realism, the Nouveau Roman integrated cinematic techniques, and in turn led to new formal experiment in film. Moreover, French cinema was from the very beginning attuned to the moods of the country, and reflected — whether directly or indirectly — the social and political anxieties of the times.
