The course examines the place of cinema in the history of modern Israel as a participant, a witness and a critical commentator. The different roles assumed by the filmmakers vis-à-vis their society and nation correspond to different periods in the evolution of Israel. Thus, the chronological survey of Israeli cinema will address issues related to the formation of national ideology and the changing social realities and group identity (ethnic, religious, minorities, etc.).. The analysis of the films will explore the continuous struggle for cultural identity, and the search for local cinematic expression in relation to the hegemony of American audio-visual culture and the models of European cinemas. Films will include social comedies (Kishon and Topol's Sallah), war dramas (Menahem Golan's Operation Jonathan, Avanti Popolo), documentaries, and award-winning personal art films. TTh 2:30-4p.m.
