FREN 114 SC - Reality Matters: Exploring "Le Cinéma du Réel"

Nonfiction cinema does not simply represent our historical world. It makes claims about it. It engages with reality. And like many other forms of art, it aspires to transform reality by changing the way we see it. Using French and Francophone films as examples, this course will explore the diversity of ways in which, since its inception in 1895 and the Lumiere brothers' 50 second films, "Le Cinéma du Réel" has not ceased to reinvent itself, becoming today one of the most protean forms of cultural intervention. Taught in French.

Prerequisite(s): FREN100 SC  or equivalent.
