GER 460 - Film nach 1989


This class, which could also be called Film nach der Wiedervereinigung, introduces students to German cinema since the fall of the wall, analyzing films in their various socio-historical and political contexts. We will explore topics like (re)unification, remembering the Holocaust, representing terrorism, Turkish-German film, transnational and international film reception and collaboration, representing and remembering East Germany, migration and “post-migrant” cinema, and the intersections of race, gender, sexuality, and citizenship status on screen. This class is taught in German.

Satisifes a major and minor requirement in German Studies.
