This course explores the representation of social issues in French cinema, from the Sixties to the contemporary era. Students will develop knowledge in cultural studies, and their oral and written competences in French, through the study of social exclusion and marginality, class conflict, and social identities as cinematographic themes. Particular emphasis will be placed on extending attentive interpretive skills as ways of reflecting on storytelling and its relationship to the cinematic medium, the interplay between documentary and fictional genres, and authorship.
