This class will be conducted entirely in Enlish. French Cinema Classics is the study of French cinema from its beginning in 1895 to the present. We will examine works of the legendary filmmakers such as Jean Renoit and François Truffaut, as well as contemporary filmmakers such as Jean-Pierre Jeunet, Julie Delpy and Michel Hazanavicious. This course emphasizes the chronological development of styles, techniques and genres, while introducing students to French historical and socio-cultural contexts.

These four classes are part of ECU's elementary French language sequence. The sequence aims at developing students’ four skills: reading, writing, listening and speaking in French. In addition to acquiring these skills, students also learn about French and Francophone culture using the language as a communication tool.
