EN 404 - Film and the Environment


This course surveys a diverse array of films that dramatize a broad range of environmental issues, e.g., soil and water conservation, food crises, industrialization, overpopulation, pollution, nuclear energy, fracking, and humanity’s relation to wild animals and the wilderness. We will screen, analyze, discuss, and write these films both in cinematic terms and in terms of the ethical and philosophical issues they raise about the technocratic transformation of life on Earth in the modern era.
