Global Hotspots Through Foreign Film: Stay-at-Home Edition
Register for this Spring 2023 course on the new NYU SPS Academy of Lifelong Learning website.
Seeing is believing, and foreign films give us the experience of traveling beyond borders without a plane ticket. The journey begins with the screening of eight award-winning foreign films from Colombia and other countries that examine global hotspots in conflict. These award-winning, powerful films serve as a catalyst for our post-screening discussions about foreign film, as well as present-day issues in the film’s geopolitical region and how the film reflects different cultures and global issues. You will watch the films on your own and then meet online for lively and informative discussions. For the last session, the class is invited for an in-person, private briefing at the Mission of Colombia to the United Nations hosted by the Deputy Ambassador. Spring 2023 tuition is $749.
