AM 356 - Sports Cinema


Credits: 4
An exploration of feature films and documentaries about sports to understand and appreciate-aesthetically, historically, culturally-the visual discourse of sports. Students will interrogate the cultural context of sports as expressed through visual media and will critically assess films as modes of communication that have their own codes and conventions. Films include Leni Riefenstahl’s Olympia (1938), which chronicles and celebrates the 1936 Berlin Olympic games, and several “classic” sport films-among them, Raging Bull (1980) and Hoop Dreams (1994). Students are required to attend a weekly evening film screening.
Note(s): (Fulfills humanistic inquiry.)
