About the event

Join renowned film scholar Nicole Brenez (University of Paris 3/Sorbonne Nouvelle) for an exploration of the theory and practice of Internationalist Cinema, a historically-anchored form of political filmmaking which emerges from the belief that isolated sites of struggle are linked by a profound continuum of social and aesthetic concerns. This talk is one of the inaugural events in “French Cinema: History, Theory, Politics,” an ongoing series of cross-campus lectures sponsored by Columbia University and The Graduate Center. It is being held in conjunction with “Internationalist Cinema for Today,” a ten-day retrospective curated by Nicole Brenez for Anthology Film Archives, and with a talk Professor Brenez will give at Columbia University on Thursday, March 1st.
