Classes Begin January 26th
This course provides a deeper understanding and analysis of French films in a relaxed environment on Zoom. Because the class is virtual, the students are asked to watch the film (in French with English subtitles) before the lesson. Films are available for rent through Amazon streaming services.
We will examine their directors and actors, analyze the themes and language, and learn vocabulary and expressions related to a specific film and cinema in general. Each class includes an open discussion in French and English.
Class meets Wednesday nights (see dates below in the FAQs).
Deadline to enroll is December 31, 2021.
