-  Reel Cities: How has cinema transformed the way we represent and inhabit cities? From the futuristic skyline of Metropolis to the post-WWII ruins in Zentropa, urban filmscapes have largely contributed to the shaping and reshaping of German culture. This course proposes a trajectory through German and international film history and the urban imaginary. Our objectives will be twofold: first, we will follow the motif of the "reel city," distinguishing among its various configurations; and secondly, we will develop a theoretical framework for film analysis and interpretation. Lectures and discussions will be in English.
