RHET 319W (EV) Filming Conflict and Identity (1)

This course will consider problems of documentary films, stereotyping, nontraditional narrative structure, and docu-animation within the contest of the religious, social and political tensions in the region. Subject films will range from archival footage and independent documentaries to major feature films.
