Description

This class treats the earthquake as an event that radically transforms our understanding of the limits and possibilities of cinema, as well as of life itself. Students will explore how, in one way or another, the films in the course unsettle the stable categories that govern our political, ethical, social and psychological position as regards self and other in the wake of a major disaster like an earthquake.
