The presented course aims at familiarizing participating students with a selection of important, influential, or simply critically acclaimed films released in the recent years. The course is divided into double classes (90+90 minutes) that take place every two weeks in the afternoons. Classes consist of an introduction to a movie, screening (always with English subtitles) and discussion. Students will be assessed based on their active participation in discussions and a project presenting an important modern movie of their choosing produced in their country.
