FREN 477 - Franco-African Cinema & Literature


Transforming early 20th-century film traditions in order to create an original artistic and storytelling language, movies from French-speaking Africa include many cultures and embrace many nations and people.  This course takes students through the journey of Francophone filmmakers, from the 1960s to the present, with introductions about the context of each screened movie and follow-up in-depth discussions.  Students will explore film techniques and concepts, and discover related African literary tales.  Taught in English (films are shown in class with English subtitles).
