Even if you've already been through film school, you may not have seen such masterpieces as the anti-KKK Within Our Gates, made by one of the first African American filmmakers, or The House is Black by one of the first female Iranian directors. John Trafton will introduce you to these and other films whose profound social and artistic impact has been neglected by traditional movie history: Killer of Sheep, Salt of the Earth, Born in Flames, and others. The class lasts for five sessions with suggested readings included.
