The history of the modern city is intertwined with the history of cinema. This introductory film course will examine how film captured the world’s cityscapes as they rose and fell throughout the twentieth century. How did changing conceptions of modernity and urbanism affect cinema? Did cinema invent an idea of a global city? How did cinema itself affect city life? Screenings to include Taxi Driver, The Third Man, Bicycle Thieves, Blade Runner, Man with a Movie Camera, M, and many more.
