Documentary Films

« back to classes page
ClassGraphic Do you love learning about fascinating people, places, and ideas through the medium of film? If so, this documentary film study group is for you. Each week, members will view a documentary film at home and then come together to discuss the film in class. Each member will be responsible for selecting a film and leading the discussion of that film. The films reflect the members’ interests and passions and can include such wide ranging topics as social justice, biography, environment, music, and personal adventure challenges. The weekly discussions include an analysis of the film’s content, aesthetic, and technical aspects. Selected films must be widely available to study group members. The selections may be rented through an online streaming service for a minimal fee, available via the internet at no cost, or borrowed from a library. We will limit any required subscriptions to Netflix. Join us as we explore and discuss a variety of documentary films.
