This course is very based on discussions - both during class and weekly posts on Teams in response to the screenings. We watched a lot of anime, so if you are interested in that, this is a good class for you, but as someone who does not watch anime, it got a little old. The evening screenings don't usually take up the full 3 hours - we usually finished up around 9/9:30. Prof. Stein also provides access to the screening materials, so if you cannot make the screening, you can watch the film/episode on your own. Overall it's an easy class with a couple of papers and two big projects. She grades pretty fairly but harder than other 100 level courses I've taken.

This was a fun way to fill the art distribution requirement, but not a super engaging or useful class overall. The lectures are pretty uninteresting and every week one of the classes is focused on discussion. But there were only a few assignments which are graded fairly easily and do not take up too much time. Also the screening choices were mostly pretty boring. If you are trying to take an easy class, this is a good choice but it may not be super interesting.

My favorite course of the year. This is a great class for people who are passionate about film. If you have a passing interest in movies and tv I would not recommend it as highly because it may feel too semantic. Louisa is incredible, passionate and experienced. She wants to see her students create and succeed which is very refreshing.
