ECO 277 - Economics and Cinema


This course focuses on how movies employ cinematographic artistry to address political-economic issues. It is designed for students with a genuine interest in cinema and in social issues. We will view a diverse selection of movies, discuss the economic issues they address, and analyze the artistic devices they use to convey them. As a final project, students will create and present a proposal for a movie including a synopsis of the story, its economic context, and an analysis of the ways it would express social-economic issues. Actual short pilot movies are very highly encouraged.

Suitable for non-majors.
