AAST 242 - “Framing the Hood:” Examining the “Hood Film” and its Significance in Black Art Culture

FC ARHU CD
4 credits
Within the world of Black filmmaking, there is the genre sometimes referred to as the “hood film.” These films have become cultural staples within Black communities. In this course we will examine the beauty of these films technically and narratively to understand why these films, often considered flops by white critics, are integral parts of Black Communities for years after their release. This course will also explore the many ways in which these films challenge, reflect, and build upon hegemonic notions of Black life and experiences.
This course is appropriate for new students.
