Since the silent era, the Scandinavians have been leading international producers of films. This very brief summer series is designed to give students a sense of the sweep of Scandinavian filmmaking from the silent era to today, with a special emphasis on magical women and beautiful photography. We will be watching and discussing films from Sweden, Denmark, and Finland/Russia. Students will view the films in a screening before each lecture/discussion.
There will be an optional film screening before each class from 10:00 am-12:00 noon at Freight and Salvage. (Note change in time.)
