Films have been used to portray cities across myriad landscapes (e.g. cultural, economic, and social). Consequently, they provide insights into how filmmakers and the general public have viewed urban regions throughout history. In this course, we will use popular and independent films to explore cities, their dynamics, and their representation across different time periods, using examples from New York and Los Angeles, but also exploring world cities such as London and Hong Kong through film.
