A screening of 5 films produced in the Winter semester History Department course “Historical Narratives and the Moving Image,” an innovative course  combining theoretical and practical components. The theoretical part of the course surveys classical and experimental documentary films and discusses the mechanisms of constructing and challenging established visual historical narratives, while in the practical component students work in pairs to develop and produce a short film addressing a historical topic or a theme related to memory politics.  The course is co-taught by Oksana Sarkisova and Jeremy Braverman.
