Travel in Film

Take a trip around the world by watching travel films from different countries, from road movies to emotional homecoming narratives. Each week, we will explore the cultural context of every film and analyze reviews and short academic articles. We will reflect on the cinematic purpose of "travel" in contemporary international films and examine character development and narrative structure. Films may include The Royal Exchange (France), The Second Mother (Brazil), The Edge of Heaven (Germany/Turkey), The Sapphires (Australia), Where Is the Friend’s House? (Iran), Ida (Poland), Midnight (US/Greece), Disobedience (UK), The Band’s Visit (Israel), and Roma (Mexico). No grades issued.
