BLST 038. Blackness on Film and Video


In this course we will study the history and present of Black representation on film and video. The Black image on screen has been one of the most powerful tools for making, reflecting, and breaking the concept of race on a global scale. We will study the ways in which the moving image, in narrative, documentary, and experimental genres, shapes how we see and relate to difference across race, class, gender, and sexuality.
