This course examines recent and contemporary German cinema, from blockbusters such as Der Untergang to the international work of directors such as Tom Tykwer. The main focus, however will be on the movement known as the “Berlin School,” a group of approximately a dozen filmmakers with more than 40 features to their credit. Dissecting the everyday reality of post-wall Germany, this counter-cinema has been highly successful at international film festivals in recent years. It draws on Italian Neo-Realism, the New German Cinema, and contemporary international independent film to advocate radical notions of realism and narrative conventions, challenging viewers to rethink political filmmaking in a national and transnational environment. Screenings will include films by key filmmakers associated with the Berlin School, such as Christian Petzold, Christoph Hochhäusler, Angela Schanelec, and others. Readings will combine German primary texts, interviews, and reviews with secondary texts in English. All discussions will be in German.
