Taught in French. This overview of French-speaking feature film production in Quebec, from its beginnings at the National Film Board, through 1960s direct cinema to contemporary international award-winners, examines different cinematic styles and discourses of representative filmmakers with specific attention paid to two angles of inquiry: the aesthetics of the real and the demands of cultural memory.
