The City on Film

How have filmmakers captured cities on film? How have the streets and buildings of cities, the lives of city dwellers, and the characters of cities been represented? Has there been a Canaletto of film? A Dickens? We will watch films on our own and meet for lively discussions via Zoom to help us answer these questions. Our exploration will include several of the great cities of the world—Rome, Paris, Berlin, London, and Tokyo among them. The films chosen for the course, including works by acknowledged masters, feature films, experimental and short films, and silent era films, portray cities in the past and present.
