Course Description:

Extreme political and cultural ideas exist throughout the world, and mainstream film dramatizes these ideas in various dramatic structures. We will view and discuss four films made over a 45-year period, covering WWII and the rise of fascism to concerns about white nationalism in present-day America. Films to be viewed: "Cabaret"; "Europa, Europa"; "American History X"; and, "Welcome to Leith." Conversation will touch undoubtedly on difficult topics such as anti-Semitism, racism, white supremacism, and ultra-militarism. Please join us in a serious exploration of extremism and its effects on our lives.
