Studies in German Film: Fritz Lang - The Weimar Films

This seminar subjects the surviving German films by Fritz Lang to a variety of critical interrogations --narratological, techno-historical, cultural-theoretical-- within the context of Weimar cinema. A combination of close film analyses and readings in film history, theory and aesthetics serve to both reassess and complicate the retrospective teleology of Siegfried Kracauer's canonical account of this formative and deeply heterodox period in German media history.
