COMM 2350 Film As Cross-Culture Communication


This course is designed to help us study how films explore cultures. Films have proven their tremendous potential as viable means of providing exposure and insights into the vast, mostly uncharted realms of cross-cultural communication. Although the technological revolution has reduced the physical boundaries of our world to those of a “village,” the social and cultural differences have persisted and managed to keep us as far apart as ever. We notice each other’s presence, but fail to understand one another through weekly viewing and analyzing of films, this course attempts to open a window through which we could see a more critical view of ourselves and a more receptive view of the others. The course will focus on both cultural values and aesthetic aspects of the film. Prerequisite(s): ENG 1100 
Credits: 3.0
