HS375  Indian History, Culture, and Religion through Film     (3.00 cr.)

Prerequisite: HS101. Cinema is a powerful medium for describing the history and culture of a people. Given its antiquity and varied cultural and religious life, India can be well understood through popular films made in its many distinct languages, particularly Hindi, Telugu, and Tamil. Times, people, and traditions come alive and lead to a deep involvement of the viewer with issues that could not have come to the fore except through the medium of film. This course covers films made in India and on India over the last hundred years. GT/IA/IF
