Seeing Ourselves in Film continues a conversation we began last Fall during the John Sayles’ Independent Director series: “what does it mean to be an American?”
This Winter and Spring we will look at one film from each decade 1940’s – 2010’s. We will ask ourselves:
How does Hollywood depict Americans in this film?
What happened during this decade which helped create this film?
Does Hollywood influence or reflect changes in culture? Or both?
