Environmental Documentary Films

HUMN103

Description

Documentary films are a powerful way to inform the public about environmental issues. Because they represent real people, documentaries are a powerful rhetorical tool directors and producers use to provoke a deeper, empathic response. Although documentary films with themes of environmental activism date back to the silent film era, the 21st century has seen a spike in the number of quality films that engage the public in environmental issues. In this class, students will study the documentary film genre, analyze films, discuss the ethics of producing documentary films, and produce their own short documentary project.
