The Second World War and the Occupation of France by German forces had a traumatic impact on the nation's identity.  We will examine the way France has tried to deal with this conflicted period through a series of films that each deal, directly or indirectly with the major questions posed by history to French "memory" of the Occupation.  What was the role of collaboration, resistance, anti-Semitism, of writers and intellectuals during this traumtic period?  How has film helped to define and re-shape the ways in which France has come to terms with its conflicted past?

When Offered Spring.

Distribution Category (LA-AS)

Comments Conducted in English. There will be weekly film viewings on Tuesday evenings.
