Off the Beaten Path: Films of the New Millenium

« back to classes page
ClassGraphic We may see most of the blockbusters, the Oscar winners and the indie films that briefly catch fire. However, since the turn of the new millenium, there have been scores of fine films that failed to find a wide audience. We will present a further selection of films of this type from the 21st century. The films we will discuss come primarily from the United States, but there will also be selections from Canada, France, and Senegal. These films share a deep investigation of human emotion and motivation, reveal fully developed characters, and present engaging plots that capture the viewer's attention and engagement. We will watch the films as a group followed by a discussion led by that week's facilitator. We will study the film's place in film history, the genre, the arcs of the major characters, the symbolism, the plot structure, cinematography, lighting and music, as well as additional aspects unique to each film. Join us as we educate ourselves while enjoying some overlooked gems.
