German Road Movies

German Road Movies
Road movies represent a fundamentally American genre influenced and defined by the geographic and societal conditions of the United States. In this course we will explore what changes these films undergo when put into a different cultural context. After discussing the history and properties of the genre, we will analyze and discuss examples of German, Austrian, and Swiss road movies from the 1970s to the present. This examination will allow a perspective on how genre conditions change and expand over time and space, as well as an intercultural comparison between the US and German-speaking countries. 3 hrs.
