DLCL Spring Film Series: Inglourious Basterds (2009) Quentin Tarantino
An all-star cast joins Quentin Tarantino’s panache for over-the-top action in this bold rewriting of an alternative history of the fall of Hitler. Tarantino’s second-highest grossing film, boasting a suite of awards and nominations, is a delightful retelling of the ways the marginalized, the outnumbered, and the most unexpected members of society join together to fight against fascism.
Discussion will focus on analyzing the structures, actors, and acts of resistance, rebellion, and revolt in international film. In particular we will look at who resists and why; how a rebel’s identity and social position affects his or her political engagement; and how different forms of resistance can create movements that evolve from grassroots, across governments, and around the globe. In our study of representations of resistance across different schools and cultures of cinema, film technologies, and cinematic history, we will also address the ways that film creates suspense and intrigue, represents cause and effect, and prompts questions of ethics.
These screenings are part of the DLCL Film Series DLCL 152A/354A, which undergraduates and undergraduates can take for one unit C/NC. Audience members are encouraged to participate in the discussions following the films. Please be aware that some films may include graphic or disturbing content: viewers are therefore advised to familiarize themselves with the films' content before viewing. May be repeated for credit.
