Film buffs are usually exposed to a wider range of films than most casual viewers and may have a more diverse set of references to draw upon when evaluating a film. Each week, we will watch a different film and discuss its merits, artistry and complexity. A full list of films will be emailed after registration is completed.

Assignment:  Please watch F.W. Murnau’s Sunrise: A Story of Two Humans (1927). Free on YouTube.
