FIM 160 - History of Black Cinema


History of Black Cinema is a study of the important contributions made by Black filmmakers and actors, from the first all black cast film produced in 1919, (“The Homesteader” by filmmaking pioneer Oscar Micheaux) to today’s many great African American directors and actors. There will also be an introduction of international films produced by Black filmmakers. By the end of this course, students will have a strong understanding of both the historic and present day contributions made by Black filmmakers, through which students may examine their place in film history. Prerequisites: FIM 111 - Intro to Film   (3)
