Global Hotspots Through Foreign Film
Register for this Fall 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. We will watch the films together as a group and have an in-person discussion afterwards. For the last session, the class may be invited for an in-person, private visit to the United Nations. Fall 2023 tuition is $999.
Registering at least three weeks prior to the course start date is highly recommended.
